  4. I measure the progress of the community by the degree of progress which women have achieved.
  5. “I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity.”
  6. An ideal society should be mobile, should be full of channels for conveying a change taking place in one part to other parts. In an ideal society there should be many interests consciously communicated and shared.
  7. The relationship between husband and wife should be one of closest friends
  8. Equality may be a fiction but nonetheless one must accept it as a governing principle

  16. I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity.
  17. There is a Difference Between Merely Living and Living Worthily
  18. The question is not whether a community lives or dies, the question is on what plane does it live? There are different modes of survival. But all are not equally honorable.
  19. Democracy is not a form of government, but a form of social organisation.
  20. I feel that the constitution is workable, it is flexible and it is strong enough to hold the country together both in peacetime and in wartime. Indeed, if I may say so, if things go wrong under the new Constitution, the reason will not be that we had a bad Constitution. What we will have to say is that Man was vile.

  3. Faith is a mockery if it does not teach us that we can build a more complete and beautiful world.
  4. Knowledge is power." Rather, knowledge is happiness, because to have knowledge - broad, deep knowledge - is to know true ends from false, and lofty things from low. To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man's progress is to feel the great heart-throbs of humanity through the centuries; and if one does not feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life.
  5. A well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers.
  6. It need not discourage us if we are full of doubts. Healthy questions keep faith dynamic. In fact, unless we start with doubts we cannot have a deep-rooted faith. One who believes lightly and unthinkingly has not much of a belief. One who has a faith which is not to be shaken has won it through blood and tears-has worked his or her way from doubt to truth as one who reaches a clearing through a thicket of brambles and thorns.
  7. Four things to learn in life: To think clearly without hurry or confusion; To love everybody sincerely; To act in everything with the highest motives; To trust God unhesitatingly.

  12. The method of nonviolence seeks not to humiliate and not to defeat the oppressor, but it seeks to win his friendship and his understanding. And thereby and therefore the aftermath of this method is reconciliation.
  13. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
  14. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.
  15. Love is the most durable power in the world. This creative force is the most potent instrument available in mankind's quest for peace and security.
  16. Another reason why we must love our enemies is that hate scars the soul and distorts the personality.

  10. "Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character."
  11. "Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile."

  14. "Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding."

  16. Weak people revenge. Strong people forgive. Intelligent People Ignore.
  17. I once thought that if I could ask God one question, I would ask how the universe began, because once I knew that, all the rest is simply equations. But as I got older I became less concerned with how the universe began. Rather, I would want to know why he started the universe. For once I knew that answer, then I would know the purpose of my own life.

    19. Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.
    20. It is so easy to break down and destroy. The heroes are those who make peace and build.
