Leo Tolstoy
“Germans are self-confident on the basis of an abstract notion—science, that is, the supposed knowledge of absolute truth. A Frenchman is self-assured because he regards himself personally, both in mind and body, as irresistibly attractive to men and women. An Englishman is self-assured, as being a citizen of the best-organized state in the world, and therefore as an Englishman always knows what he should do and knows that all he does as an Englishman is undoubtedly correct. An Italian is self-assured because he is excitable and easily forgets himself and other people. A Russian is self-assured just because he knows nothing and does not want to know anything, since he does not believe that anything can be known.”
Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

Mahatma Gandhi
“There are innumerable definitions of God, because His manifestations are innumerable.”
Mahatma Gandhi, An Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments with Truth

Mahatma Gandhi
“But the fact that I had learnt to be tolerant to other religions did not mean that I had any living faith in God.”
Mahatma Gandhi, An Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments with Truth

Mahatma Gandhi
“No matter how explicit the pledge, people will turn and twist the text to suit their own purpose”
Mahatma Gandhi, The Story of My Experiments With Truth

Mahatma Gandhi
“As the elephant is powerless to think in the terms of the ant, in spite of the best intentions in the world, even so is the Englishman powerless to think in the terms of, or legislate for, the Indian.”
Mahatma Gandhi, An Autobiography - The Story of My Experiments with Truth
