Mahatma Gandhi

20 quotes from such a wonderful spirit: 
1. “Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with love.”
2. “Nobody can hurt me without my permission.”
3. “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
4. “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”
5. “You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.”6. “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s need, but not every man’s greed”
7. “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.” 
8. “An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”
9. “God has no religion.”
10. “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” 
11. “Hate the sin, love the sinner.”
12. “I cannot teach you violence, as I do not myself believe in it. I can only teach you not to bow your heads before any one even at the cost of your life.” 
13. “In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth.”
14. “It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.”
15. “When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it – always.”
16. “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.”
17. “What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty or democracy?”
18. “Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary.”
19. “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”

And my absolute favorite:
20. “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
