Quotes on Mahatma Gandhi

“Generations to come, it may be, will scarce to believe that such one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth” -Albert Einstein

Just an old man in a loin cloth in distant India, yet when he died, humanity wept. - Louis Fischer

Impressions of Gandhi? You might well ask for someone's impression of the Himalayas. -Bernard Shaw

“Today, when world peace is threatened with atomic and nuclear weapons capable of annihilating the human race, Mahatma Gandhi's teachings of love and truth and of respect for others' rights have become even more meaningful than at any other time.” - Haile Selassie

"If humanity is to progress, Gandhi is inescapable. He lived, thought, and acted, inspired by the vision of humanity evolving toward a world of peace and harmony. We may ignore him at our own risk." -Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Not since Buddha has India so reverenced any man. Not since St. Francis of Assissi has any life known to history been so marked by gentleness, disinterestedness, simplicity of soul and forgiveness of enemies. We have the astonishing phenomenon of a revolution led by a saint." - Will Durant

Martin Luther King said :
I had driven to Philadelphia one Sunday afternoon to listen to Dr. M. Johnson, the Chairman of Howard University. He had just returned from a visit to India and to my great delight wanted to talk about the life and philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi. His message was so profound and inspiring that I immediately bought half a dozen books on his life and work after the meeting. Like most others, I had heard of Gandhi but had never studied him seriously.

As I read his books I was fascinated by his crusades of non-violent resistance ...In his theory on love and non-violence I discovered a method for creating social change. I became convinced that non-violent struggle represented the only morally and practically sound method open to oppressed people in their struggle for freedom. While reading about Gandhi, King began to realize what Jesus of Nazareth had meant when he said: "Show your enemies that you love them! Ask God to love those who would persecute you!"

One of the greatest men born in this world is Mahatma Gandhi. He was a leader par excellent who always taught by example. He was able to inspire people and make them join in the Indian freedom struggle. Gandhi’s success was mainly due to the fact that he had total control of his mind. He cultivated his mind and became a great source of inspiration for several millions of people. Any one who can exercise control over his mind will become great like Gandhi. Here an easy technique is taught to everyone to cultivate one’s mind. The technique is called “ONE MINUTE GANDHI”.

Words plough our mind. Those who practice Home Exnora-Yoga particularly children should read every say at least one quotable quote of a great man. Quote books are sold in the shops and there are several websites which have published the wonderful quotes of great men, which are freely available. The Home Yoga practitioner will every day choose one good positive, energetic and motivating quote with a powerful message. He has to write it on his diary for that day and he should read it a number of times during that day whenever he gets time. He must try to understand it fully. One quote per day means 365 quotes per year. Imagine what an impact that this exercise will create for the Home Yoga Practitioner.

  1. The thoughts will stick to his conscious mind and percolate down to sub-conscious. It will alter the mind chemistry and also the very thinking pattern. Home Yoga Practitioner will become a broad minded person with utmost confidence, positivism and optimism.
  2. His vocabulary will improve and command over language will increase manifold.
  3. He will become a creative right brain thinker.
  4. He will become virtuous, a good thinker, speaker and writer.

We have 1440 minutes in a day and spending a couple of minutes in doing this exercise of helping some one in need will develop one’s personality.

"I see God in every human being. When I wash the leper's wounds, I feel I am nursing the Lord himself. Is it not a beautiful experience?" -Mother Teresa

"When I see waste here, I feel angry on the inside. I don't approve of myself getting angry. But it's something you can't help after seeing Ethiopia." -Mother Teresa

“Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go”. - Mother Teresa

“No matter who says what, you should accept it with a smile and do your own work”. Mother Teresa
I don't claim anything of the work. It is his work. I am like a little pencil in his hand. That is all. He does the thinking. He does the writing. The pencil has nothing to do with it. - Mother Teresa

Another word for kindness was Mother Teresa. Mother Teresa came to India and served the poorest of the poor. She inspired millions of people.

When she was ten years old she went to her mother and conveyed her desire of going to India and serving the poor. Her mother said “you are too young to go. When you become eighteen, you approach me. I will give my consent”. When she became eighteen Teresa went to her mother and reminded her of her burning desire to go to India to serve the poor. Mother gave her nod and saw the daughter off and this was the last time they ever met each other.

Mother Teresa came to India and rest is history. She dedicated her whole life and all the 24 hours in a day for serving others and helping humanity. Nobody can surpass her. Why not out of the 1440 minutes in a day ten minutes one can allot to serve and become a little Mother Teresa? The Home Yoga Practitioner particularly children should make it their hobby and habit to do one good deed everyday, extending at least a small help to others. It can be to their parents, neighbours, classmates, handicapped and poor. The children should take a vow that the day will not be complete without their having extended help to others spending at least ten minutes for a cause. This help rendered should be recorded in the diary on that particular date. This can be read after some time, the whole collection after one year. How it would impact is something incredible.

Imagine the out come of these exercises. There is no need for parents to teach morals to their children and discipline them which will be automatic. Those who extend a small help to others are bound to develop as great Samaritans and noble souls. If everyone practises “ONE MINUTE GANDHI TEN MINUTE TERASA” everyday the society will also become same and there won’t be any wrongs or misdeeds. Happiness will flourish.

Imagine the cumulative impact of it when every one in the family become one minute Gandhi and ten minute Teresa and periodically exchange their learning and experience.

Children can form ‘OMG TMT Club’ in their area of residence and in their school too and become Gandhis and Teresas. The world is badly in need.
