I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.
Gandhi quotes
You must learn to be still in the midst of activity and to be vibrantly alive in repose.
Gandhi
India wants to avoid a war at all costs but it is not a one-sided affair, you cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.




Gandhi Indira quotes
One must beware of ministers who can do nothing without money, and those who want to do everything with money.
Gandhi Indira
We admired Dr. King. We felt his loss as our own. The tragedy rekindled memories of the great martyrs of all time who gave their lives so that men might live and grow. We thought of the great men in your own country who fell to the assassin's bullet and of Mahatma Gandhi's martyrdom here in this city, this very month, twenty-one years ago. Such events remain as wounds in the human consciousness, reminding us of battles, yet to be fought and tasks still to be accomplished. We should not mourn for men of high ideals. Rather we should rejoice that we had the privilege of having had them with us, to inspire us by their radiant personalities.
Indira Gandhi quotes
To bear many children is considered not only a religious blessing but also an investment. The greater their number, some Indians reason, the more alms they can beg.
Indira Gandhi
To be liberated, woman must feel free to be herself, not in rivalry to man but in the context of her own capacity and her personality.
Gandhi Indira quotes
All my games were political games; I was, like Joan of Arc, perpetually being burned at the stake.
Gandhi
A nation's strength ultimately consists in what it can do on its own, and not in what it can borrow from others.
Gandhi Indira
I am not interested in a long life. I am not afraid of these things. I don't mind if my life goes in the service of this nation. If I die today, every drop of my blood will invigorate the nation.
Indira Gandhi
Dacca is now the free capital of a free country.




Indira Gandhi quotes
There are moments in history when brooding tragedy and its dark shadows can be lightened by recalling great moments of the past.
Indira Gandhi
Martyrdom does not end something, it is only a beginning.
Gandhi quotes
All unprejudiced persons objectively surveying the grim events in Bangla Desh since March 25 have recognized the revolt of 75 million people, a people who were forced to the conclusion that neither their life, nor their liberty, to say nothing of the possibility of the pursuit of happiness, was available to them.
Gandhi Indira
People tend to forget their duties but remember their rights.
Gandhi Indira quotes
There exists no politician in India daring enough to attempt to explain to the masses that cows can be eaten.
Indira Gandhi
My father was a statesman, I'm a political woman. My father was a saint. I'm not.
Indira Gandhi quotes
Think twice before pointing a finger to any one as other three fingers are always pointing towards you.
