True morality consists, not in following the beaten track, but in finding out the true path for ourselves and in fearlessly following it
Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and Non-violence are as old as the hills. All I have done is to try experiments in both on as vast a scale as I could.
My commitment is to truth not consistency.
Whenever you have truth it must be given with love, or the message and the messenger will be rejected.
It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence.
To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.
In matters of conscience, the law of the majority has no place.
I claim to be no more than an average man with less than average abilities. I have not the shadow of a doubt that any man or woman can achieve what I have, if he or she would make the same effort and cultivate the same hope and faith.
Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy. Action is no less necessary than thought to the instinctive tendencies of the human frame.
Adaptability is not imitation. It means power of resistance and assimilation.
