It is easy enough to be friendly to one's friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business.
Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill.
To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves.
Truth never damages a cause that is just.
There is no god higher than truth.
I hold that without truth and nonviolence there can be nothing but destruction of humanity.
There is nothing on earth that I would not give up, excepting of course, two things and two things only, truth and nonviolence.
I claim that in losing the spinning wheel we lost our left lung. We are, therefore, suffering from galloping consumption. The restoration of the wheel arrests the progress of the fell disease.
The only tyrant I accept in this world is the still voice within.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
