God is because Truth is.
To forgive and accept injustice is cowardice
There are 2 type of people in this world,
those that take the credit
and those that actually do the work.
Take my advise and follow the latter,
as there is a lot less competition there.”
The things that will destroy us are:
politics without principle;
pleasure without conscience;
wealth without work;
knowledge without character;
business without morality;
science without humanity,
and worship without sacrifice.
There should be no occasion where a woman
considers herself subordinate or inferior to a
man..woman is the companion of man, gifted with
equal mental capacity.
You assist an evil system most effectively
by obeying its orders and decrees. An evil system
never deserves such allegiance. Allegiance to it
means partaking of the evil. A good person will
resist an evil system with his or her whole soul.
I do not want my house to be walled in on
all sides, and my windows to be closed. Instead, I
want the cultures of all lands to be blown about
my house as freely as possible. But I refuse to be
blown off my feet by any.
I have nothing new to teach the world.
Truth and non-violence are as old as the hills.
All I have done is to try experiments in both on
as vast a scale as I could.
Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of
the soul. It is daily admission of one’s
weakness. . . . It is better in prayer to have a
heart without words than words without a heart.
What a man thinks, he becomes
A man is but the product of his thoughts; what he thinks, he becomes.

When we make others happy, we too gain happiness
Happiness, the goal for which we are all striving, is reached by endeavouring to make the lives of others happy.
The world has enough for everyone’s needs,
but never enough for even one man’s greed.
Do not become a slave to desire
He, who is discontented, however much he possesses, becomes a slave of his desires. All the sages have declared from the housetops that man can be his own worst enemy as well as his best friend. To be free or to be a slave lies in his own hand.
The way that we treat animals measure our greatness
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way it’s animals are treated.
Women should not mimic men
I do believe that woman will not make her contribution to the world by mimicking or running a race with man. She can run the race, but she will not rise to the great heights she is capable of by mimicking man. She should recognise and develop her own unique qualities.
