33 Positive Sayings
The man that needs no introduction. A man that changed a nation and changed the world with his compassion, vision, tolerance and patience. A man who is an undying reminder of how one person can inspire a community, a nation and the world.
Here are 30 positive sayings from the amazing Mahatma Gandhi!
“You yourself as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.”
“There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.”
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.”
“First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win.”
“There is no ‘way to peace,’ there is only ‘peace.”
“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.”
“I first learned the concepts of non-violence in my marriage.”
“There goes my people. I must follow them, for I am their leader.”
“Don’t talk about it. The rose doesn’t have to propagate its perfume. It just gives it forth, and people are drawn to it. Live it, and people will come to see the source of your power.”
“My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.
“Seek not greater wealth, but simpler pleasure; not higher fortune, but deeper felicity.”
“Faith is not something to grasp, it is a state to grow into.”
“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”
“Poverty is the worst form of violence.”
“I came to the conclusion long ago that all religions were true and that also that all had some error in them, and while I hold by my own religion, I should hold other religions as dear as Hinduism. So we can only pray, if we were Hindus, not that a Christian should become a Hindu; but our innermost prayer should be that a Hindu should become a better Hindu, a Muslim a better Muslim, and a Christian a better Christian.”
“There is no school equal to a decent home and no teacher equal to a virtuous parent.”
“If we are to reach real peace in the world, we shall have to begin with the children.”
“If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.”
“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.”
“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”
“Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.”
“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.”
“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.”
“To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.”
“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
“You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.”
“Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.”
“It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.”
“A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.”
