For decades, Mahatma Gandhi has been an inspiration to peaceful people all over the world. We admire him for his ideas: social justice, civil rights, nonviolence. We applaud his actions as the leader of the nonviolent revolution that brought India to independence from British rule. And we’re inspired by his words: some of the most-shared and best-loved quotes can be traced back to Gandhi's lips.
Sixty-five years ago today, Gandhi was assassinated in a cruel mockery of the peaceful values he based his life on. But his philosophy survives, as do his powerful words. We invite you to visit our Gandhi gallery on Pinterest to see some of our favorite quotes from this great man of peace.
