” ‘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.’ Gandhi, who always claimed he had no more than ordinary capacities, is proof that these spiritual laws do work, and that by obeying them we can transform our character and consciousness. Gandhi belongs to our own century and faced many of the problems we ourselves are facing today, and even though physically dead, he still continues to give new direction to our civilization.”
— Eknath Easwaran in The Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living, Volume 1: The End of Sorrow
Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote freedom to err. It passes my comprehension how human beings, be they ever so experienced and able, can delight in depriving other human beings of that precious right.
– Mahatma Gandhi
