Mahatma Gandhi Quotes

There is a saying in Hindi "Lakhon Mein Ek" (Which loosely translates to "One among Millions" in English), but for legends like Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, who is an inspiration to almost entire population of earth, this Hindi colloquial proverb should change to "Arbon Mein Ek" ("One among Billions").

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."


"Be the change that you wish to see in the world.""Live as if you were to die tomorrow.
