Mahatma Gandhi's Famous Quotes

An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.
A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes. Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding. An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching. Anger is the enemy of non-violence and pride is a monster that swallows it up. All the religions of the world, while they may differ in other respects, unitedly proclaim that nothing lives in this world but Truth. Confession of errors is like a broom which sweeps away the dirt and leaves the surface brighter and clearer. I feel stronger for confession. Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances. First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
