Mahatma Gandhi was the preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India. He was a very wise man and we have a lot to learn from his wisdom. Here are 20 of the most famous and wisest sayings he once said.
Gandhi became world famous for earning India's independence through non-violent means; unfortunately, he died in a very violent way. Unpopular with Indian Hindu extremists (he'd already survived five previous assassination attempts), he was shot three times on January 30, 1948 outside a prayer meeting. Two million people took part in his funeral procession. Arrested and tried by an Indian court, shooter Nathuram Godse and a co-conspirator were eventually executed for the murder.
