Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of our Nation, was a very well spoken and learned man. The words he spoke were greatly respected and cherished by the entire country, for he was a man of a few words, but everything he uttered was meaningful, inspiring and thought provoking. So much so, that there several books dedicated to the quotes and sayings of M.K Gandhi.

Some of his famous quotes are mentioned below:

•    Where there is love there is life.

•    The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

•    I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

•    First, they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

•    An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.

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

•    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.

•    You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

•    Before the throne of the Almighty, man will be judged not by his acts but by his intentions. For God alone reads our hearts.

•    Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

•    A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.

•    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.

•    A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.

•    It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence.

•    A No uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a Yes merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.

•    Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.

•    The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

•    Spiritual relationship is far more precious than physical. Physical relationship divorced from spiritual is body without soul.

•    Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth.

•    A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.

•    Nobody can hurt me without my permission.

•    Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding.

•    If patience is worth anything, it must endure to the end of time. And a living faith will last in the midst of the blackest storm.

•    An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.

•    A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.

•    A man is but a product of his thoughts. What he thinks he becomes.

•    I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.

•    Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

•    An ounce of patience is worth more than a tone of preaching.

•    Change yourself – you are in control.

•    See the good in people and help them.

•    Without action, you are not going anywhere.

•    Be congruent, be authentic, be your true self.

•    Glory lies in the attempt to reach one’s goal and not in reaching it.

•    In a gentle way, you can shake the world.
