A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on religion, politics, truth, and love

To see the universal and all-pervading Spirit of Truth face to face, one must  be able to love the meanest of creation as oneself. And a man who aspires after that cannot afford to keep out of any field of life. That is why my devotion to Truth has drawn me into the field of politics;  and I can say without the slightest hesitation, and yet in all humility, that those who say that religion has nothing to do with politics do not know what religion means.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on education, exchange, value, shared knowledge, teacher, student, and growth

A teacher who establishes rapport with the taught, becomes one with them, learns more from them than he teaches them. He who learns nothing from his disciples is, in my opinion, worthless. Whenever I talk with someone I learn from him. I take from him more than I give him. In this way, a true teacher regards himself as a student of his students. If you will teach your pupils with this attitude, you will benefit much from them.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

[When asked by an American clergyman what caused him most concern:] The hardness of heart of the educated...  If you [students] spend your next vacation in some far-off village in the interior you... will find the people cheerless and fear-stricken.   You will find houses in ruins.  You will look in vain for any sanitary or hygenic conditions.  You will find the cattle in a miserable way, and yet you will see idleness stalking there.  The people will tell you of the spinning wheels having been in their homes long ago....  They have no hope left in them.  They live, for they cannot die at will.  They will spin only if you spin.  Even if a hundred out of a population of three hundred in a village spin, you assure them of an additional income of 1,800 rupees ($360) a year.   You can lay the founation of solid reform on this income in every village....  Start with the faith that if you fix yourself up in one single village and succeed, the rest will follow....  Students have to react upon the dumb millions.  They have to learn to think not in terms of a province or a town or a class or a caste, but in terms of a continent and of the millions who include untouchables, drunkards, hooligans and even prostitutes, for whose existence in our midst everyone of us is responsible.
