  1. You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
  2. The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
  3. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. We need not wait to see what others do.
  4. Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
  5. A man is but a product of his thoughts. What he thinks he becomes.
  6. Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
  7. Manliness consists not in bluff, bravado or loneliness. It consists in daring to do the right thing and facing consequences whether it is in matters social, political or other. It consists in deeds not words.
  8. In a gentle way, you can shake the world.
  9. Wherever you are you will always be in my heart.
  10. 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.

  12. Nonviolence is a weapon of the strong.
  13. Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time.

  14. An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.
  15. Faith is not something to grasp, it is a state to grow into.
  16. I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.
  17. The seeker after truth should be humbler than the dust. The world crushes the dust under its feet, but the seeker after truth should so humble himself that even the dust could crush him. Only then, and not till then, will he have a glimpse of truth.
  18. I cannot conceive of a greater loss than the loss of one’s self-respect.
  19. I should love to satisfy all, if I possibly can; but in trying to satisfy all, I may be able to satisfy none. I have, therefore, arrived at the conclusion that the best course is to satisfy one’s own conscience and leave the world to form its own judgment, favorable or otherwise.
  20. There is no school equal to a decent home and no teacher equal to a virtuous parent.
  21. I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers.
  22. The greatness of humanity is not in being human, but in being humane.
  23. It is easy enough to be friendly to one’s friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business.
  24. You may never know what results come of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results.
  25. If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.
  26. Fearlessness is the first requisite of spirituality. Cowards can never be moral.
  27. Nobody can hurt me without my permission.
  28. Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the English or France to the French. It is wrong and inhuman to impose the Jews on the Arabs… Surely it would be a crime against humanity to reduce the proud Arabs so that Palestine can be restored to the Jews partly or wholly as their national home.
  29. Speak only if it improves upon the silence.
  30. Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

  34. No one can ride on the back of a man unless it is bent.
  35. Where there is love there is life.
  36. A thousand candles can be lighted from the flame of one candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness can be spread without diminishing that of yourself.

  42. In doing something, do it with love or never do it at all.
  43. When every hope is gone, ‘when helpers fail and comforts flee,’ I find that help arrives somehow, from I know not where. Supplication, worship, prayer are no superstition; they are acts more real than the acts of eating, drinking, sitting or walking. It is no exaggeration to say that they alone are real, all else is unreal.
  44. True morality consists not in following the beaten track, but in finding the true path for ourselves, and fearlessly following it.
  45. The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems.
  46. It is good to see ourselves as others see us. Try as we may, we are never able to know ourselves fully as we are, especially the evil side of us. This we can do only if we are not angry with our critics but will take in good heart whatever they might have to say.
  47. Service which is rendered without joy helps neither the servant nor the served.
  48. Love is the strongest force the world possesses and yet it is the humblest imaginable.
  49. I cannot teach you violence, as I do not myself believe in it. I can only teach you not to bow your heads before any one even at the cost of your life.
  50. Poverty is the worst form of violence.
  51. It is not that I do not get angry. I don’t give vent to my anger. I cultivate the quality of patience as angerlessness, and generally speaking, I succeed. But I only control my anger when it comes. How I find it possible to control it would be a useless question, for it is a habit that everyone must cultivate and must succeed in forming by constant practice.
  52. There are many causes I would die for. There is not a single cause I would kill for.
  53. Honest differences are often a healthy sign of progress.
  54. Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.
  55. 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.
  56. The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful then a thousand heads bowing in prayer.
  57. If you don’t find God in the next person you meet, it is a waste of time looking for him further.
  58. There is no way to peace, there is only peace.
  59. It’s easy to stand in the crowd but it takes courage to stand alone.
  60. Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilisation.

  62. Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.
  63. First, they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
  64. Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment. Full effort is full victory.
  65. A ‘No’ uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a ‘Yes’ merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.
  66. 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.
  67. Remember that all through history, there have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they seem invincible. But in the end, they always fall. Always.
  68. Truth is one, paths are many.
  69. If I were asked to define the Hindu creed, I should simply say: Search after truth through non-violent means. A man may not believe in God and still call himself a Hindu. Hinduism is a relentless pursuit after truth… Hinduism is the religion of truth. Truth is God. Denial of God we have known. Denial of truth we have not known.
  70. It is wrong and immoral to seek to escape the consequences of one’s acts.
  71. The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
  72. You don’t know who is important to you until you actually lose them.

  83. You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.
  84. Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.
  85. There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever.
  86. I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
  87. An unjust law is itself a species of violence. Arrest for its breach is more so. Now the law of nonviolence says that violence should be resisted not by counter-violence but by nonviolence. This I do by breaking the law and by peacefully submitting to arrest and imprisonment.
  88. Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

  99. The moment there is suspicion about a person’s motives, everything he does becomes tainted.
  100. Live simply so that others may simply live.
  101. 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 than the one derived from fear of punishment.
  102. The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.
  103. 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.
  104. Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with love.
  105. I become more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of Hussein, the scrupulous regard for pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers and his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle.
  106. You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.
  107. 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.
  108. A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.
