Gandhi Quotes

Mahatma Gandhi 'got' it. Some haven't yet. I am appauled by Mrs. Hassan's murder and by the situation in Iraq altogether.

Peace will not come out of a clash of arms but out of justice lived and done by unarmed nations in the face of odds.

Hatred ever kills, love never dies; such is the vast difference between the two. What is obtained by love is retained for all time. What is obtained by hatred proves a burden in reality for it increases hatred.

Nonviolence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is
mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man

Violent means will give violent freedom.

However much I may sympathize with and admire worthy motives, I am an uncompromising opponent of violent methods even to serve the noblest of causes.

Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment.

Nonviolence is not a garment to be put on and off at will.
Its seat is in the heart, and it must be an inseparable part of our being.

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.

What kind of victory is it when someone is left defeated?

Ghandi. We could use another person similar to his or MLK's type today.

Damn, isn't that the truth. I think many people are suffering just because we don't have anyone like this right now.

there's such a void in today's world without a single, peace-promoting leader for most everyone to look up to.

:cry:

All of the great progressive leaders of the US were murdered. I don't think we've yet recovered. (We'll have to wait until U2dem's a bit older, I guess )

Anybody here seen my old friend Bobby?

we've still got the dalai lama and nelson mandela, at least. two great leaders committed to standing up for what they believe--non-violent change.

Why is it that so many of the promoters of peace were killed in violent attacks?

Jesus, MLK, John Lennon, Kennedy...

Maybe this is why there are so few.

Mandela is the last, I think it will be awhile before we have another. Especially in America. But I think the current climate of neo-cons will breed some rebellion and just may breed another. We'll see.

I got my collector's edition HTDAAB today, and when I opened it this was the first thing I read

We must become the change we want to see in the world ~ Gandhi

Can you tell me where he's gone? I thought I saw him walking o'er the hill, with Abraham, Martin, and John.

They're definitely creating the need. And you know what they say about necessity being the mother of invention.

I was talking to a guy who was saying we're going back to the 50s. And that means we're going to have the 60s all over again!
