It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence.
Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

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.
It is the quality of our work which will please God and not the quantity.
In this age of the rule of brute force, it is almost impossible for anyone to believe that any one else could possibly reject the law of the final supremacy of brute force.
Not to have control over the senses is like sailing in a rudderless ship, bound to break to pieces on coming in contact with the very first rock.
In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in an clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth.
