And he said....

...and he said...

  • There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.

    ...and he said...

  • Satyagraha does not begin and end with civil disobedience.

    ...and he said...

  • My notion of democracy is that under it, the weakest should have the same opportunity as the strongest.

    ...and he said...

  • To me I seem to be constantly growing. I must respond to varying conditions, yet remain changeless within.

    ...and he said...

  • True democracy cannot be worked by twenty men at the center. It has to be worked by the people of every village.

    ...and he said...

  • What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism, or the holy name of liberty and democracy?

    ...and he said...

  • We are constantly being astonished at the amazing discoveries in the field of violence. But I maintain that far more undreamt of and seemingly impossible discoveries will be made in the field of nonviolence.

    ...and he said...

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

    ...and he said...

  • Today the cities dominate and drain the villages so that they are crumbling to ruins. Exploiting of villages is itself organized violence. If we want freedom to build on non-violence, we will have to give villages their proper place.

    ...and he said...

  • As soon as we lose the moral-basis, we cease to be religious.

    ...and he said...

  • The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

    ...and he said...

  • The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world's problem.

    ...and he said...

  • It may be long before the law of love will be recognized in international affairs. The machineries of government stand between and hide the hearts of one people from those of another.

    ...and he said...

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

    ...and he said...

  • Whatever you do will become insignificant, but it is very important to do it.

    ... such was that fussy old man who changed the destiny of an Empire with a fistful of salt!!
