>Happy Birthday Gandhi!

>In 2007 the UN decided to make October 2nd the International Day of Non-Violence, in honor of Mahatma Gandhi’s positive footprint he made on the world. Today also happens to be his birth date (October 2nd, 1869).

Some of Gandhi’s words to live by:

“I will give you a talisman. Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him. Will he gain anything by it? Will it restore him to a control over his own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to swaraj [freedom] for the hungry and spiritually starving millions?Then you will find your doubts and your self will melt away.”

“A right cause never fails, a true word never hurts in the end.”

“When we know that death may snatch us away at any time, what right have we to put off till tomorrow what we can do today?”

“You must sing and dance with joy in all conditions…You must wear a smile over your face, no matter what comes to pass.”

“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.”

“The Past belongs to us, but we do not belong to the Past. We belong to the present. We are makers of the Future, but we do not belong to the Future.”

“We must be the change we wish to see in the world.”
