Gandhi Jayanti Quotes


 A short story on Gandhi Jayanti :

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on 2 October 1869.

The son of a senior government official, Gandhi was born and raised in a Hindu Bania community in coastal Gujarat, and trained in law in London. Gandhi became famous by fighting for the civil rights of Muslim and Hindu Indians in South Africa, using the new techniques of non-violent civil disobedience that he developed.
Returning to India in 1915, he set about organising peasants to protest excessive land-taxes. A lifelong opponent of "communalism" (i.e. basing politics on religion) he reached out widely to all religious groups.
He became a leader of Muslims protesting the declining status of the Caliphate. Assuming leadership of the Indian National Congress in 1921, Gandhi led nationwide campaigns for easing poverty, expanding women's rights, building religious and ethnic amity, ending untouchability, increasing economic self-reliance, and above all for achieving Swaraj—the independence of India from British domination.

Here are the few quotes from Mahatma Gandhi :

"My life is my message ".

" Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will".

"We must become the change we want to see ".

"The future depends on what we do in the present".

"Their is no god higher than truth".

"Glory lies in the attempt to reach one's goal and not in reaching it".

"A 'NO' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'yes' merely  uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble. "

" A man who has completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and become the ransom of the world. It was a perfect art.

" A principle is the expression of perfection, and as imperfect beings like us cannot practise perfection,we devise every moment limits of its compromise in practise."

"A vow is a purely religious act which cannot be taken in a fit of passion. It can be takne only with a mind purified and composed and with GOD as witness."

"All compromise is based on give and take, but there can be one give and take on fundamentals. Any compromise on mere fundamentals is a surrender. For it is all give and no take.

" You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if an few drops of the ocean are dirty,
the ocean does not become dirty.
