A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on children, peace, love, and innocence

If we are to reach real peace in this world and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with children; and if they will grow up in their natural innocence, we won't have to struggle; we won't have to pass fruitless idle resolutions, but we shall go from love to love and peace to peace, until at last all the corners of the world are covered with that peace and love for which consciously or unconsciously the whole world is hungering.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on society, state, government, coercion, liberty, and freedom

I look upon an increase of the power of the State with the greatest fear, because although while apparently doing good by minimizing exploitation, it does the greatest harm to mankind by destroying individuality, which lies at the root of all progress. We know of so many cases where men have adopted trusteeship, but none where the State has really lived for the poor.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

How do you know if the next act you are about to do is the right one or the wrong one? Consider the face of the poorest and most vulnerable human being that you have ever chanced upon, and ask yourself if the act that you contemplate will be of benefit to that person; and if it will be, it's the right thing to do, and if not, rethink it.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on truth, question, and voice within

What is Truth?
A difficult question;
but I have solved it for myself
by saying that it is
what the "voice within" tells you.
