Mohandas Gandhi Quotes on God (24 Quotes)


    Everyone has faith in God though everyone does not know it. For everyone has faith in himself and that multiplied to the nth degree is God. The sum total of all that lives is God. We may not be God, but we are of God, even as a little drop of water is of the ocean.

    My trust is solely in god. And I trust men only because I trust God. If I had no God to rely upon, I should be like Timon, a hater of my species.

    God sometimes does try to the uttermost those whom he wishes to bless.

    It is foolish to think that by fleeing one can trick the dread god of death. Let us treat him as a beneficent angel rather than a dread god. We must face and welcome him whenever he comes.

    Before the throne of the Almighty, man will be judged not by his acts but by his intentions. For God alone reads our hearts.


    Non-violence requires a double faith, faith in God and also faith in man.

    God, as Truth, has been for me a treasure beyond price. May He be so to every one of us.

    God is, even though the whole world deny him. Truth stands, even if there be no public support. It is self-sustained.

    But for my faith in God, I should have been a raving maniac.

    God never appears to you in person but always in action.

    I want to see India free in my life-time. But God may not consider me fit enough to see the dream of my life fulfilled. Then I shall quarrel, not with Him but with myself.

    I may live without air and water, but not without Him. You may pluck out my eyes, but that cannot kill me. You may chop off my nose but that will not kill me. But blast my belief in God, and I am dead.

    There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever.

    My religion is based on truth and non-violence. Truth is my God. Non-violence is the means of realising Him.

    Surely conversion is a matter between man and his Maker who alone knows his creatures' hearts. A conversion without a clean heart is, in my opinion, a denial of God and Religion. Conversion without cleanliness of heart can only be a matter of sorrow, not
