“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.” – Mahatma Gandhi
New Delhi, Jan 30: Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was assassinated on January 30 in the year 1948 by Nathuram Vinayak Godse alias Ramachandra Godse. Godse shot Mahatma Gandhi three times on his chest during the evening prayer at 05:17. Gandhi was taken to Birla House where he died of the wounds. This happened 69 years ago. Since the day Gandhi started his part of fight against the British till this day, his words have been revered by the generation to come. The wisdom in his quotes is still referred to by many in India as well as by the people all around the world.
Today, on his death anniversary, we have gathered few of them to spark the inspiration to move along in life:
A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.
Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.
An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
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.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator.
I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.
Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
