Mahatma Gandhi

Birth: October 02, 1869 - Death January 30, 1948
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (/ˈɡɑːndi, ˈɡændi/; Hindustani: ( listen); 2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was an Indian activist who was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific Mahātmā (Sanskrit: "high-souled", "venerable") – applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa – is now used worldwide. In India, he is also called Bapu (Gujarati: endearment for father, papa) and Gandhi ji, and known as the Father of the Nation.

Be the change that you wish to see in the world.

jika sebuah mata harus dibalas dengan sebuah mata, hanya akan membuat seluruh dunia ini buta

mereka tidak dapat mengambil harga diri kita kalau kita tidak memberikannya kepada mereka

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.

Where there is love there is life.

Hate the sin, love the sinner.

- Mahatma Gandhi

The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.

- Mahatma Gandhi

Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with love.

- Mahatma Gandhi

Love is the strongest force the world possesses and yet it is the humblest imaginable.

- Mahatma Gandhi

What barrier is there that love cannot break?

Where there is love there is life.

- Mahatma Gandhi

Action expresses priorities.

- Mahatma Gandhi

There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.

- Mahatma Gandhi

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.

To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man’s injustice to woman. If by strength is meant brute strength, then, indeed, is woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man’s superior. Has she not greater intuition, is she not more self-sacrificing, has she not greater powers of endurance, has she not greater courage? Without her, man could not be. If nonviolence is the law of our being, the future is with woman. Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than woman?” [ (, Oct. 4, 1930)]

I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings.

I came to the conclusion long ago that all religions were true and that also that all had some error in them, and while I hold by my own religion, I should hold other religions as dear as Hinduism. So we can only pray, if we were Hindus, not that a Christian should become a Hindu; but our innermost prayer should be that a Hindu should become a better Hindu, a Muslim a better Muslim, and a Christian a better Christian.
