Gandhi Quotes

Quotes by Mahatma Gandhi

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948) was the inspiring and unstoppable political and spiritual leader of the Indian independence movement. He advocated and practiced total non-violent mass civil disobedience, which led India to independence from the British and inspired civil rights movements around the world. He is officially honored in India as the Father of the Nation. He was assassinated by a political extremist in 1948.
