Quote[s] of the Day: Gandhi

One of my favorite quotes of all time is by Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi often referred to as Mahatma (Great Heart) Gandhi:

The first “I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

However today I read a quote of Gandhi on The Firearm Blog and immediately this became another favorite of mine:

“Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.”*

*An Autobiography OR The story of my experiments with truth, by M.K. Gandhi, p.238)

***

Some other good quotes.
