    (Mohandas Gandhi)

  • In the application of Satyagraha, I discovered, in the earliest stages, that pursuit of Truth did not admit of violence being inflicted on one's opponent, but that he must be weaned from error by patience and sympathy.

So the doctrine came to mean vindication of Truth, not by infliction of suffering on the opponent but one's own self.
    (Mohandas Gandhi)

  • Morality is the basis of things and truth is the substance of all morality.
