Gandhi the Man

In Books


Our daughter, Christina, bought this book for a school project. What an incredible story this book tells! It is also filled with many great quotes of Gandhi, such as this:

“Nonviolence…does not mean meek submission to the will of the evil-doer, but it means pitting of one’s whole soul against the will of the tyrant. Working under this law of our being, it is possible for a single individual to defy the whole might of an unjust empire to save his honor, his religion, his soul, and lay the foundation for that empire’s fall or its regeneration…Nonviolence is like radium in its action. An infinitesimal quantity of it embedded in a malignant growth acts continuously, silently, and ceaselessly till it has transformed the whole mass of diseased tissue into a healthy one. Similarly, even a little of true nonviolence acts in a silent, subtle, unseen way and leavens the whole society.”
