One’s own religion is after all a matter between oneself and one’s Maker and no one else’s.
My religion is based on truth and nonviolence. Truth is my God. Nonviolence is the means of realising Him.
It is any day better to stand erect with a broken and bandaged head then to crawl on one’s belly, in order to be able to save one’s head.
Better far than cowardice is killing and being killed in battle.
“A ‘No’ uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a ‘Yes’ merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.”
“Everyone who wills can hear the inner voice. It is within everyone.”
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
“I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill.”
“It is any day better to stand erect with a broken and bandaged head then to crawl on one’s belly, in order to be able to save one’s head.”
“Nearly everything you do is of no importance, but it is important that you do it.”
“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.”
“The human voice can never reach the distance that is covered by the still small voice of conscience.”
“The only tyrant I accept in this world is the still voice within.”
“To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.”
“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it. “
“Confession of errors is like a broom which sweeps away the dirt and leaves the surface brighter and clearer. I feel stronger for confession.”
“I look only to the good qualities of men. Not being faultless myself, I won’t presume to probe into the faults of others.”
“Fear has its use but cowardice has none.”
“Fear of death makes us devoid both of valour and religion. For want of valour is want of religious faith.”
“Freedom is never dear at any price. It is the breath of life. What would a man not pay for living?”
“Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote freedom to err.”
You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.”
“There is no principle worth the name if it is not wholly good.”
“We win justice quickest by rendering justice to the other party.”
“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.”
