Famous Quotes of Mahatma Gandhi:


mahatma gandhi quotes in hindi

“It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.”

“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.”

“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.”

“You don’t know who is important to you until you actually lose them.”

“Change yourself – you are in control.”

“I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.”

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

Mahatma Gandhi Quotes on Education:

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”

"True education must correspond to the surrounding circumstances or it is not a healthy growth."

"What is really needed to make democracy function is not knowledge of facts, but right education."

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."

“A teacher who establishes rapport with the taught, becomes one with them, learns more from them than he teaches them. He who learns nothing from his disciples is, in my opinion, worthless. Whenever I talk with someone I learn from him. I take from him more than I give him.”

“A balanced intellect presupposes a harmonious growth of body, mind and soul.”

“By spiritual training I mean education of the heart.”
