Why Mahatma Gandhi Inspires

To All My Dear Readers,

There's No God Higher Than Truth

There’s No God Higher Than Truth

Here are some of my most favourite and inspirational quotes by Mahatma Gandhi that we all can learn from:

1- Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.

2- Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

3- The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

4- Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.

5- You must be the change you want to see in the world.

6- You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.

7- An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.

8- Nobody can hurt me without my permission.

9- Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with love.

10- God has no religion.

11- Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s need, but not every man’s greed.

12- You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.

13- Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn’t have it in the beginning.

14- An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.

15- You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result.

16- The only tyrant I accept in this world is the still voice within.

17- There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.

18- Suffering cheerfully endured, ceases to be suffering and is transmuted into an ineffable joy.

19- Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

20- To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.

    My dear Sohini,

    Beautiful collection of quotes from Bapuji. I wish to add one more:

    Fenner Brockway once said to Gandhiji, “Mr. Gandhi, Christ taught us: Love your enemies.” To which Gandhiji replied: “I don’t have enemies.”

    With best wishes,

    Affectionately,
    HS Eswara
