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)

Where there is love there is life.
I want to realize brotherhood or identity not merely with the beings called human, but I want to realize identity with all life, even with such things as crawl upon earth.
You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.
I first learned the concepts of non-violence in my marriage.
I have known many meat eaters to be far more nonviolent than vegetarians.
I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
I do not want my house to be walled in on all sides and my windows to be stuffed. I want the cultures of all the lands to be blown about my house as freely as possible. But I refuse to be blown off my feet by any.
The pursuit of truth does not permit violence on one's opponent.
