Mahatma Gandhi Quotes - 25 Inspirational Sayings of the Indian Freedom Fighter

Looking for inspirational quotes by Mahatma Gandhi? Then I would like to give you a list of his most stirring sayings. At the time of Gandhi, India was still ruled by Great Britain. He fought against it without violence - mainly by hunger strikes and long marches. In 1947, India finally became free. Even though Mahatma Gandhi advocated the coexistence of all religions, he was assassinated by a fanatical Hindu just one year later. Nevertheless, he made a decisive contribution to the independence of his native India today.

In this small collection of quotes I would like to give you his most inspiring sayings and wisdom.

My please: Keep in mind that many of Gandhi's quotes have been translated. I cannot guarantee that it is the original quote in each case. Therefore, double check them and feel free to leave a corrective comment. If you like and share any of the quotes in the internet, please link this elaborately created collection.
