Quotations of Mahathma Gandhiji


It has always been a mystery to me how men can feel themselves honoured by the humiliation of their fellow beings.

Woman in the companion of man, gifted with equal mental capacities. She has the right to participate in the minutest details in the activities of man, an she has equal right to liberty of freedom and liberty with him.

I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers.

Commonsense is a realised sense of proportion.

Gentleness, self-sacrifice and generosity are the exclusive possession of no one race or religion.


It is the law of love that rules mankind. Had violence, i.e. hate, rules us we would have become extinct long ago. And yet, the tragedy of it is that the so-called civilised men and nations conduct themselves as if the basis of society was violence.

Hatred ever kills, Love never dies, such is the vast difference between the two. What is ordained by love is retained for all time. What is obtained by hatred proves a burden in reality, for it increases hatred.

Where there is love there is life.

It may be long before the law of love will be recognised in international affairs. The machineries of government stand between and hide the hearts of one people from those of another.

To forgive is not to forget. The merit lies in loving in spite of the vivid knowledge that the one that much be loved is not a friend. There is no merit in loving an enemy when you forget him for a friend.

The only way love punishes in by suffering.

Justice that love gives is a surrender; justice that law gives is a punishment.

Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent than the one derived from fear of punishment.

Love never claims, it ever gives. Love ever suffers, never resents, never revenges itself.

Where love is, there God is also.

We may have our private opinions but why should they be a bar to the meeting of hearts?
