“This Gandhi Jayanti, let’s remember the man who led us to independence, through these quotes, written by none other than the great man himself
Mahatma Gandhi, also known as the Father of the Nation was always shy and timid, to the extent that he slept with lights on in his room. Though he wanted to become a doctor, his father wanted him to become a minister with the government. Thus, he was pushed to become a lawyer. At the age of 18, he was packed off to London to study Law. On returning he struggled to become a lawyer. In his first case, he froze in the court and fled from there. He made sure that he reimbursed his client’s fees. Soon after he became an Indian activist and led India to Independence from the British Raj.
Gandhiji was a man best known for conviction, non-violence, dignity, peace, transformation, justice, courage, liberation, respect, compassion, dignity, perseverance, creativity, friendship and education. Even at that time he was well read.
Here are some quotes which he has written especially for the youth of the country:
- The good man is the friend of all living things.
- If you don’t ask, you don’t get.
- No culture can live, if it attempts to be exclusive.
- The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
- If I had no sense of humour, I would long ago have committed suicide.
- The only tyrant I will accept in this world is the “still small voice” within me.
- Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
- The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems.
- Anger and intolerance are the twin enemies of correct understanding.
- Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
