Almost all public figures who promote peace are assassinated. In 1883, Gandhi was thirteen years old he became married to Kasturbai Makhanji who was the age of fourteen. Their first child together only lived a few days, afterwards Gandhi and his wife went on to have four children. Gandhi paved the way for peace and gave his life to do it.

Gandhi Quotes:

"A 'No' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'Yes' merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble."
Mahatma Gandhi

It is always good to speak from your heart. Even if you say yes to please someone know that in the long run it will hurt them. It is better to tell someone no in the beginning to avoid hurting them later on.

"A principle is the expression of perfection, and as imperfect beings like us cannot practice perfection, we devise every moment limits of its compromise in practice."
Mahatma Gandhi

We aren't perfect and we can not practice perfection. We can only express perfection through our principles.

"An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching."
Mahatma Gandhi

There are walkers and there are talkers. You shouldn't preach when you won't do yourself. Actions speak louder than words. Don't just say you will do or believe in something, act it, people will be attracted more.

Gandhi 1906


Gandhi Quotes

"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."
Mahatma Gandhi

This is a great example of the above quote. He is basically saying Christians preach but don't act as though they preach.

"The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
Mahatma Gandhi

The United States doesn't treat their animals very kindly, well at least corporate farms. There is much animal abuse in our country and high meat intake. We should rethink our approach and eat less meat. Meat contributes to high cholesterol and heart attacks. A country that treats animals with respect must treat its people with respect.

"An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind."
Mahatma Gandhi

Treat others as you would wanted to be treated yourself. An eye for an eye is the problem. No one should harm each other. Peaceful solutions work so much better than violent. The usual problem is one side always wants to use violence and forces the opposition to defend itself.

"A nation's culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people."
Mahatma Gandhi

The culture of the people always reflects the environment around it. Although governments are perceived to have control, the government only reflects the people. The problem is the government persuades the people to believing lies.

"A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes."
Mahatma Gandhi

This is very true. People are easily persuaded into believing certain things. You are what you believe.
