Ponderpoints From Mahatma Gandhi


Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy.

You must be the change you want to see in the world.

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

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 or democracy?

Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

GandhiLive as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

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

Even as wisdom often comes from the mouths of babes, so does it often come from the mouths of old people. The golden rule is to test everything in the light of reason and experience, no matter from where it comes.
