Rising In Non-Violent Action: It Is Possible To Live In Peace

Mohandas Gandhi (1869-1948)



If someone with courage and vision can rise to lead in nonviolent action,
The winter of despair can, in the twinkling of an eye, be turned into the summer of hope.

It is possible to live in peace.

Nonviolence is not a garment to put on and off at will.
Its seat is in the heart, and it must be an inseparable part of our being.

It is possible to live in peace.

Nonviolence, which is a quality of the heart, cannot come by an appeal to the brain.
It is a plant of slow growth, growing imperceptibly, but surely.

It is possible to live in peace.                                                                    

If a single person achieves the highest kind of love,
It will be sufficient to neutralize the hate of millions.

It is possible to live in peace.

If we are to reach real peace in this world,
And if we are to carry on a real war against war,
We shall have to begin with the children.

It is possible to live in peace.

The future depends on what we do in the present.

It is possible to live in peace.

Mohandas K. Ghandi
