The Thoughts of the Mahatma Gandhi

Answers for our Times :

- The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. 

- God sometimes does try to the uttermost those whom he wishes to bless. 

- When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, 
my soul expands in the worship of the creator. 

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

- If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children. 

- I look only to the good qualities of men. Not being faultless myself,
I won't presume to probe into the faults of others. 
There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed. 
It has always been a mystery to me how men can feel themselves honored by the humiliation of their fellow beings. 

- 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. 

- In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart. 

- 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. 

- To give service to a single heart by a single act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer. 

- 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.
