Gandhi

What some people said about him     See HERE for more info

“It was my fate to be the Antagonist of a man for whom even then I had the highest respect. His activities at that time were very trying. Gandhi himself received – what he no doubt desired – a short period of rest and quiet in goal. For him everything went according to plan. For me – the defender of law and order – there was the usual trying situation, the odium of carrying out a law which had no strong public support, and finally the discomfiture when the law had to be repealed. For him it was a successful coup.

Nor was the personal touch wanting. In goal he had prepared for me a very useful pair of sandals which he presented to me when he was set free. I have worn these sandals for many a summer since then, even though I may feel that I am not worthy to stand in the shoes of so great a man.”            General Smuts

 “ His legacy is courage,

His lesson truth,

His weapon love.

His life is his monument.

He now belongs to mankind.”             Louis Fischer – American writer.

 

Some of Gandhi’s sayings

 “The path of true non-violence requires much more courage than violence.”

" If we all believed in 'an eye for an eye' the whole world will be blind."

“ Nobody can hurt me without my permission.”

“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.”

 “Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.”

 “The future depends on what you do today.”

Gandhi
