When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a little time they seem invincible. But in the end, they always fall – think of it: Always.
You must learn to be still in the midst of activity and to be vibrantly alive in repose.
If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.
Mahatma Gandhi, quoted in Gratefulness.org
In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness.
We may never be strong enough to be entirely nonviolent in thought, word and deed. But we must keep nonviolence as our goal and make strong progress towards it.
