We must become the change we want to see.
An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.
I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill.
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
They cannot take away our self-respect if we do not give it to them.
I believe in the fundamental Truth of all the great religions of the world. I believe that they are all God given. I came to the conclusion long ago... that all religions were true and also that all had some error in them.
Those who say religion has nothing to do with politics do not know what religion is.
God has no religion.
If we have listening ears, God speaks to us in our own language, whatever that language be.
I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians.  Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
If Christians would really live according to the teachings of Christ, as found in the Bible, all of India would be Christian today.
What do I think of Western civilization?  I think it would be a very good idea.
Intolerance betrays want of faith in one's cause.
Faith is not something to grasp, it is a state to grow into.
Faith must be enforced by reason.  When faith becomes blind it dies.
Faith is not a delicate flower which would wither away under the slightest stormy weather.
Men often become what they believe themselves to be.  If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have it in the beginning.
A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.
In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the universe is endlessly bountiful. Just put forth a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you.
You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result.
Whenever you are confronted with an opponent, conquer him with love.
We must always seek to ally ourselves with that part of the enemy that knows what is right.
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
President means chief servant.
All crime is a kind of disease and should be treated as such.
Poverty is the worst form of violence.
The Roots of Violence:  Wealth without work, Pleasure without conscience, Knowledge without character, Commerce without morality, Science without humanity, Worship without sacrifice, Politics without principles.
The measure of a country's greatness should be based on how well it cares for its most vulnerable populations.
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth.
An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.
All business depends upon men fulfilling their responsibilities.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow.  Learn as if you were to live forever.
Man should forget his anger before he lies down to sleep.
Truth never damages a cause that is just.
The only tyrant I accept in this world is the still voice within.
Your capacity to keep your vow will depend on the purity of your life.
If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.
There is more to life than increasing its speed.
