A few of my favorite quotes of the great Gandhi: First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.......... Practicing nonviolence begins at the dinner table......Be the change you wish to seen in the world........There is no god higher than truth.
Gandhi’s worldly possessions.... "I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ." "You must not lose faith in humanity.
