I'm not an absolute pacifist but I believe Mahatma Gandhi's actions were admirable.
The Spirit of M.K. Gandhi | Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the pre-eminent political and spiritual leader of India during the Indian independence movement. He was the pioneer of satyagraha—resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience, a philosophy firmly founded upon ahimsa or total nonviolence—which led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.

. . . the dream is something you never knew was going to come into your life. Dreams always come from behind you, not right between your eyes. It sneaks up on you. But when you have a dream, it doesn't often come at you screaming in your face, "This is who you are, this is what you must be for the rest of your life." Sometimes a dream almost whispers. ... So you have to every day of your lives be ready to hear what whispers in your ear; it very rarely shouts. " Steven Spielberg

“Most people stiffen with self-consciousness when they pose for a photograph. Lighting and fine camera equipment are useless if the photographer cannot make them drop the mask, at least for a moment, so he can capture on his film their real, undistorted personality and character. ” — Philippe Halsman

"This Polish-French scientist has to feature on any list about the influential women in history", affirmed Donna when she heard this name. "Mum did you know that Marie Curie was the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize for two categories on her contribution to the field of Radioactivity?", said Sharon. "Absolutely, imagine what the world would have been without X-Ray machines that were first developed by this woman", said Donna.
Marie Curie was a Polish scientist who won a Nobel prize in both Chemistry and Physics. She was the first female professor of the University of Paris, and made ground-breaking work in the field of Radioactivity. “Humanity needs practical men, who get the most out of their work, and, without forgetting the general good, safeguard their own interests. But humanity also needs dreamers, for whom the disinterested development of an enterprise is so captivating that it becomes impossible for them to devote their care to their own material profit.” - Marie Curie Short Bio Marie Curie Marya Sklodovska was the youngest of 5 children, born in 1867, Warsaw Poland. She was brought up in a poor but well educated family. Marya excelled in her studies and won many prizes. At an early age she became committed to the ideal of Polish independence from Russia which was currently ruling Poland with an iron fist, and in particular making life difficult for intellectuals. She yearned to be able to teach fellow Polish woman who were mostly condemned to zero education.
Marie Curie (Madame Curie) was born today 11-7 in 1867. She was the physicist/chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity. She also was the first woman to wing a Nobel Prize. She passed in 1034 from aplastic anemia brought on by exposure to radiation.

Mother Teresa (1910-1997) She ministered to those who no one else was willing to reach out to. The Lepers, the destitute, the babies that had been aborted late in pregnancy. She depended on God and listened to him. She stood up for her faith, and went out from the convent. She followed God until the day she died. I want to be this kind of woman.
