Happy Gandhi Jayanti

Gandhi became the symbol of the Indian struggle for independence in the first half of the twentieth century. Apart from the Indian nationalists who rallied under his leadership, he inspired writers, political figures, and filmmakers. One of the most famous works inspired by Gandhi was the 1982 Richard Attenborough movie in which Ben Kingsley starred as Gandhi. If you have watched the movie you will definitely remember a Gandhi quote or two. Here are some more inspiring quotations by the great man. Each Gandhi quote in this collection abounds in practical wisdom.
  • A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.

  • As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world -- that is the myth of the atomic age -- as in being able to remake ourselves.

  • Be the change you want to see in the world.

  • First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

  • God is conscience. He is even the atheism of the atheist.

  • Honest disagreement is often a good sign of progress.

  • If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man's superior.

  • No power on earth can subjugate you when you are armed with the sword of ahimsa. It ennobles both the victor and the vanquished.

  • Nobody can hurt me without my permission.

  • There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.
