It is unwise to be too sure of one's own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.
Morality is contraband in war.
Non-violence and truth are inseparable and presuppose one another.
The pursuit of truth does not permit violence on one's opponent.
Morality is the basis of things and truth is the substance of all morality.
Truth never damages a cause that is just.
I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and Non-violence are as old as the hills. All I have done is to try experiments in both on as vast a scale as I could.
Truth stands even if there be no public support. It is self-sustained.
All the religions of the world while they may differ in other respects unitedly proclaim that nothing lives in this world but Truth.
An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.
Even if you are a minority of one the truth is the truth.
Those who know how to think need no teachers.
When restraint and courtesy are added to strength the latter becomes irresistible.
It is my own firm belief that the strength of the soul grows in proportion as you subdue the flesh.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
I claim that human mind or human society is not divided into watertight compartments called social political and religious. All act and react upon one another.
Religion is a matter of the heart. No physical inconvenience can warrant abandonment of one's own religion.
One's own religion is after all a matter between oneself and one's Maker and no one else's.
Gentleness self-sacrifice and generosity are the exclusive possession of no one race or religion.
A religion that takes no account of practical affairs and does not help to solve them is no religion.
I like your Christ I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
Spiritual relationship is far more precious than physical. Physical relationship divorced from spiritual is body without soul.
Those who say religion has nothing to do with politics do not know what religion is.
It is better to be violent if there is violence in our hearts than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence.
Here again as I conceive gentlemen forget that this government is a republican one resting exclusively in the intelligence and virtue of the People.
