Voc10K: Lesson 17

  • Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary.
  • It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of non-violence to cover impotence.
  • You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
  • You must be the change you want to see in the world.
  • The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
  • Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
    — Mahatma Gandhi
