Mohandas K (Mahatma) Gandhi

"When I despair. . . I remember that all through history, the way of truth and love has always won. There have been murderers and tyrants, and for a time they can seem invincible. But in the end they always fall. Think of it . . . Always."

cover

“Non-violence is the first article of my faith. It is the last article of my faith. ... I am endeavoring to show to my countrymen that violent non-cooperation only multiples evil ... I am here, therefore, to invite and submit cheerfully to the highest penalty that can be inflicted upon me for what in law is deliberate crime and what appears to me to be the highest duty of a citizen.”

Mohandas Gandhi, while on trial for sedition in 1922
