A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on change, force, men, nature, traditions, and violence

H. G. Wells was not the only one to mention Churchill and Hitler in the same breath: "Churchill and Hitler are striving to change the nature of their respective countrymen by forcing and hammering violent methods on them. Man may be suppressed in this manner but he cannot be changed. Ahimsa [non-violence in the Hindu tradition], on the other hand, can change human nature and sooner than men like Churchill and Hitler."

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on life, practicality, soul, and value

Ahimas is the attribute of the soul, and therefore, to be practiced by everybody in all affairs of life. If it cannot be practiced in all departments, it has no practical value.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on belief, blindness, men, people, and world

I don't believe in stereotypes, I prefer to hate people on a more personal basis. The measure of a truly great man is the courtesy with which he treats lesser men. An eye for an eye will make the whole world go blind.
