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").

To start with, let me share my favourite Quote of Mahatma Gandhi, although some say Gandhi never said this, but this quote is attributed to him only.
"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. Learn as if you were to live forever.""An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.""Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.""When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There h…
