Today, I decided to share some Mahatma Gandhi Quotes. Let me know what you think of them in the comments.
About Mahatma Gandhi
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (/ˈɡɑːndi, ˈɡændi/; GAHN-dee; 2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was an Indian lawyer, anti-colonial nationalist and political ethicist who employed nonviolent resistance to lead the successful campaign for India’s independence from British rule,and to later inspire movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific Mahātmā (Sanskrit: “great-souled”, “venerable”), first applied to him in 1914 in South Africa, is now used throughout the world.
Born and raised in a Hindu family in coastal Gujarat, Gandhi trained in the law at the Inner Temple, London, and was called to the bar at age 22 in June 1891. After two uncertain years in India, where he was unable to start a successful law practice. He moved to South Africa in 1893 to represent an Indian merchant in a lawsuit. He went on to live in South Africa for 21 years. It was here that Gandhi raised a family and first employed nonviolent resistance in a campaign for civil rights. In 1915, aged 45, he returned to India and soon set about organising peasants, farmers, and urban labourers to protest against excessive land-tax and discrimination.

Thank you! 🙂
Great quotes! Did you know that Gandhi was extremely influenced by the English Victorian John Ruskin? Gandhi read Ruskin’s book “Unto This Last” which called for social justice in terms of universal free education, government funded employment, unemployment benefits, and retirement old age welfare. Revolutionary!
Thanks! No I didn’t know that! That’s really interesting actually thanks for sharing that! 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
Great quotes. You beat me to it Pooj!! I was going to do Gandhi but settled for Martin Luther King! Both people who I found inspiring.
Yeah both of them were such great men! Their lives are just so inspiring and really a lesson for everyone about peace and unity. It’s sad how both their lives ended.
