Aug 01, 2010I was expecting much more from this collection of quotes and meaningful adresses from Gandhi, and truth is I was a bit deceived. I was perhaps expecting deeper, timeless words, meanwhile most of the quotes relate to political events of Gandhis time. This reads easily though, and provided only a couple of those quotes really hit the spot and gave me food for thought, I was done reading the book in less than an hour.
Jun 20, 2008Gandhi's resolve is unequivocal and sans pareil. His philosophies are still as applicable today, and worth considering in our present wars. (A peace brigade vs. a police force...?) His words radiate love for anything living. I thought of the atonement and Christ all throughout the book, and can't help but think Gandhi has a special place at the right hand of God! I love the concepts of satyagraha (truth/love/soul firmness) and ahimsa (lacking any desire to kill or injure anyone, practicing true Gandhi's resolve is unequivocal and sans pareil. His philosophies are still as applicable today, and worth considering in our present wars. (A peace brigade vs. a police force...?) His words radiate love for anything living. I thought of the atonement and Christ all throughout the book, and can't help but think Gandhi has a special place at the right hand of God! I love the concepts of satyagraha (truth/love/soul firmness) and ahimsa (lacking any desire to kill or injure anyone, practicing true love toward all living things), and learned a lot about the atonement as I tried to learn of Gandhi's ways. He teaches that our enemies can be respected and loved, but don't have to be conceded to. Contrary to what the human mind might think, it takes more strength and courage to be committed to loving your enemy and nonviolence than it does to fight with anger and hatred.
Feb 15, 2008"I have not the shadow of a doubt that any man or woman can achieve what I have, if he or she would make the same effort and cultivate the same hope and faith." Hey wait! Did Mahatma Gandhi say that too???
Apr 03, 2016I think this was a good introduction into Gandhi and what he taught. Mostly it is quotes from his writings over the years. Some really short and others pages long. It give a good overall view of the principles Gandhi lived by, or at least strove to live by. I also enjoyed the ten page afterward that summarized his life, not just his teachings. Now I feel like I have a base for the next book I read about Gandhi.
Apr 18, 2016Gandhi's philosophies were powerful at a critical time in India's history. I believe many of these could possibly be relevant in the state of affairs the world is in today. Some of his speeches get a little wordy to read through. However, he was a powerful thinker and one you should take the time to read about. Maybe if we all adopted just one of his ideas on peace and sacrifice, the world would be a much calmer place.

Feb 15, 2013I didn't read this with the deliberation it probably merits and possibly even requires. But I stand by my score. Reading Ghandi's words with next to no foreknowledge of my own and next to no context supplied here, they just didn't move me. There are a few pithy aphorisms, but the longer passages meant very little to me standing on their own like this. I'd have been better off reading a biography.
Nov 22, 2018A compilation of Gandhis quotes - this book would serve as a good introduction to Gandhis ideals and core beliefs such as nonviolence, non-cooperation and civil disobedience. However, without context, some quotes may appear to be out of place. And as a result, I personally have difficulty finishing this book although it is a really short one.
May 11, 2018If this book is to be believed Gandhi was not a great orator. However he did lead a country to independence? I expected quotes about democracy, protest, freedom, instead I got a disjointed number of insipid quotes about "Daily Life" and "Peace." This book has stripped Gandhi's words that galvanized millions to seem like a self-help manual. I don't know what David Attenborough was thinking but this is no way to learn about Gandhi, which was what I was hoping.
May 01, 2018This is a book of Gandhi's thoughts, or should I say, his heart. He wrote candidly and authentically about his stance on nonviolence, peace, faith, love, and many other elements of life. It is a book that should be read with an open mind and open heart because it has the power to work on our spiritual voice or inner being. It is another must read.
Feb 01, 2009[Gandhi's] words struck me so forcibly that there and then I committed myself to attempt to make a film about Mahatma Gandhi - a commitment that changed the subsequent twenty years of my life. --Richard Attenborough
