Five points, someone – Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma GandhiMahatma Gandhi, Father of the Nation

There is so much to learn from him. Here are the five things that have left a big impact on me, and I follow regularly:

  1. An ounce of practice is worth more than tonnes of preaching.
  2. The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
  3. Nobody can hurt me without my permission.
  4. A ‘No’ uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a ‘Yes’ merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.
  5. There would be nothing to frighten you if you refuse to be afraid.
