Mahatma Gandhi Wise Words

Live as if you were to die tomorrow; learn as if you were to live forever.

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.

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

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

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

Nobody can hurt me without my permission.

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

A man is but the product of his thoughts; what he thinks, he becomes.
