8 Inspirational Mahatma Gandhi quotes every professional must know


“Be the change that you want to see in the world”
― Mahatma Gandhi

“Your beliefs become your thoughts.
Your thoughts become your words.
Your words become your actions.
Your actions become your habits.
Your habits become your values.
Your values become your destiny.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

“An ounce of practice is worth a thousand words.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

“The future depends on what you do today.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be.
If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it.
On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

“It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important.
You have to do the right thing.
It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit.
But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing.
You may never know what results come from your action.
But if you do nothing, there will be no result.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

“The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems.”
– Mahatma Gandhi

Apart from Mahatma Gandhi quotes, there are even Days dedicated to him globally:

  • In 2007, October 2nd as “the International Day of Nonviolence” by the United Nations General Assembly.
  • In 1948, proposed as the School Day of Nonviolence and Peace (DENIP in Spanish) by UNESCO.
    • 30 January is observed as the School Day of Nonviolence and Peace in schools of many countries.
    • In countries with a Southern Hemisphere school calendar, it is observed on 30 March.

Needless to say, there is definitely a lot to learn from this influential personality. His non-violence movement has definitely shooked the nation but the world still needs to realize the power of non-violence and stop causing damage to human beings in the name of religion, caste, creed, country, state etc. As one of Mahatma Gandhi’s quotes says “An eye for an eye only ends up making whole world blind” is no far from reality. We hope that people learn from great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and start changing themselves.
