Wisdom from Mahatma Gandhi

1) On believing in yourself or being different: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

2) On humanity: “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.

3) On happiness and harmony: “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”

4) On changing the world: “You must be the change you want to see in the world.”

5) On maintaining cordial relations: “I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.”

6) On teamwork: “A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.”

7) On gentleness: “In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”

8) On serving others: “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

9) On action: “Action expresses priorities.”

10) On the mind: “You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.”

11) On human will: “Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.”

12) On poverty: “Poverty is the worst form of violence.”

13) On women: “Man can never be a woman’s equal in the spirit of selfless service with which nature has endowed her.”

14) On the voice within: “The only tyrant I accept in this world is the ‘still small voice’ within me. And even though I have to face the prospect of being a minority of one, I humbly believe I have the courage to be in such a hopeless minority.”

15) On doing good: “To give pleasure to a single heart by a single act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.”

16) On following our dreams: “To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.”
