Mahatma Gandhi
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi
“To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man's injustice to woman. If by strength is meant brute strength, then, indeed, is woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man's superior. Has she not greater intuition, is she not more self-sacrificing, has she not greater powers of endurance, has she not greater courage? Without her, man could not be. If nonviolence is the law of our being, the future is with woman. Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than woman?"

[To the Women of India (Young India, Oct. 4, 1930)]”
Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi
“When every hope is gone, 'when helpers fail and comforts flee,' I find that help arrives somehow, from I know not where. Supplication, worship, prayer are no superstition; they are acts more real than the acts of eating, drinking, sitting or walking. It is no exaggeration to say that they alone are real, all else is unreal.”
Mahatma Gandhi, The Story of My Experiments With Truth

Mahatma Gandhi
“What barrier is there that love cannot break?”
Mahatma Gandhi, The Story of My Experiments With Truth

Mahatma Gandhi
“The seeker after truth should be humbler than the dust. The world crushes the dust under its feet, but the seeker after truth should so humble himself that even the dust could crush him. Only then, and not till then, will he have a glimpse of truth.”
Mahatma Gandhi, The Story of My Experiments With Truth

Albert Einstein
“I believe that Gandhi’s views were the most enlightened of all the political men in our time. We should strive to do things in his spirit: not to use violence in fighting for our cause, but by non-participation in anything you believe is evil.”
Albert Einstein

Mahatma Gandhi
“There would be nothing to frighten you if you refused to be afraid.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi
“If I were a dictator, religion and state would be separate. I swear by my religion. I will die for it. But it is my personal affair. The state has nothing to do with it. The state would look after your secular welfare, health, communications, foreign relations, currency and so on, but not your or my religion. That is everybody's personal concern!”
Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi
“Violence begins with the fork.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Muhammad Ali Jinnah

Muhammad Ali Jinnah

Karl Pilkington
“Everywhere we walked we got plenty of attention due to the camera and sound men. The locals love to get on camera. [...] I'd seen footage of Gandhi surrounded like this and always thought it was because he was very popular, but now I wonder if it was just because he had a camera crew with him.”
Karl Pilkington, An Idiot Abroad: The Travel Diaries of Karl Pilkington

Shashi Tharoor
“On Gandhi: Don’t ever forget, that we were not lead by a saint with his head in clouds, but by a master tactician with his feet on the ground.”
Shashi Tharoor

Mahatma Gandhi
“I can retain neither respect nor affection for government which has been moving from wrong to wrong in order to defend its immorality”
Mahatma Gandhi

Aravind Adiga
“Go to the tea shop anywhere along the Ganga, sir, and look at the men working in that tea shop - men, I say, but better to call them human spiders that go crawling in between and under the tables with rags in their hands, crushed humans in crushed uniforms, sluggish, unshaven, in their thirties or forties or fifties but still "boys." But that is your fate if you do your job well - with honesty, dedication, and sincerity, the way Gandhi would have done it, no doubt.”
Aravind Adiga, The White Tiger

Paul Farmer
“I've been asked a lot for my view on American health care. Well, 'it would be a good idea,' to quote Gandhi.”
Paul Farmer

Mahatma Gandhi
“In the very first month of Indian Opinion, I realized that the sole aim of journalism should be service. The newspaper press is a great power, but just as an unchained torrent of water submerges whole countrysides and devastates crops, even so an uncontrolled pen serves but to destroy. If the control is from without, it proves more poisonous than want of control. It can be profitable only when exercised from within. If this line of reasoning is correct, how many of the journals in the world would stand the test? But who would stop those that are useless? And who should be the judge? The useful and the useless must, like good and evil generally, go on together, and man must make his choice.”
Mahatma Gandhi, The Story of My Experiments With Truth

“...wearing a turban of yellow, signifying knowledge, and a robe of purple, portraying purity and activity, Virchand Gandhi of Bombay delivered a lecture on the religions of India....”
The New York Times

He shrank from even the smallest things that inclined towards self indulgence. He would not remain alone with a lady.

{On Jain scholar Virchand Gandhi}”
Moncure D. Conway, My Pilgrimage to the Wise Men of the East

“Appreciation has tremendous power. A beautiful thing is not beautiful until someone appreciates it.”
Debasish Mridha

Sunil Yapa
“Gandhi was the man that freed a nation, but it was Nehru -- a man of compromise -- that built it. It was Gandhi who freed a people; but it was Nehru -- a politician -- who gave them jobs. Which one should he choose? His doubts weighed against his duty. You cannot have prosperity without a nation of your own. And yet, what good is freedom if you are shackled to your hunger by chains as thick as any ever worn by slaves?”
Sunil Yapa, Your Heart Is a Muscle the Size of a Fist
