Gandhi Quotes

Mahatma Gandhi was a wise man who had a lot of great things to say. He was most well known for his views on peace and non-violence, but he had so much more to say than even that. I figured I would post some of his more epic quotes here as a little boost of positivity. Enjoy!

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.”

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”

“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.” 

“A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.”

“The future depends on what you do today.” 

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” 

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” 

“An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.”

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” 

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”

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

“Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day:

- I shall not fear anyone on Earth.
- I shall fear only God.
- I shall not bear ill will toward anyone.
- I shall not submit to injustice from anyone.
- I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.”

“To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.” 

“It is easy enough to be friendly to one's friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business.”

“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.” 

“You may never know what results come of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results.”

“It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there'll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.” 

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

“The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.”
