The name “Gandhi” is synonymous with non-violence. His ability to unite the people of India in their search for control is unparalleled. The name “Mahatma” in Sanskrit means “Great Soul.” This great soul’s wisdom shines through the ten quotes I have selected from Gandhi’s library of wisdom.
Why am I sharing them with you?
Because navigating the waters of our daily life is sometimes challenging, and during the holiday season, they can be downright choppy. Below are some of the “Great Soul’s” greatest quotes. May you find direction and comfort in them as you sail through this holiday season.
1. Freedom During the Holidays
Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.
2. Happiness with Friends and Family
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
3. Keeping the Faith
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
4. Forgiveness and Letting Go of Past Resentments/Family Healing
An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.
5. You Are in Control of Your Experiences
Nobody Can Hurt Me Without My Permission.
6. Celebrating the One-ness of the Holi-days
God has no religion.
7. Putting Our Best Foot Forward
Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.
8. Changing Ourselves, Not Others
We must be the change we wish to see.
9. Reaching Out to Others
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
10. Unconditional Love
Whenever you are confronted with an opponent, conquer him with love.
