To give pleasure to a single heart by a single act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.
I do believe that, where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.
Cowardice is impotence worse than violence. The coward desires revenge but being afraid to die, he looks to others, maybe to the government of the day, to do the work of defense for him. A coward is less than a man. He does not deserve to be a member of a society of men and women.
Truth can hardly convey an idea of the indescribable lustre of Truth, a million times more intense than that of the sun we daily see with our eyes.
To forgive is not to forget. The merit lies in loving in spite of the vivid knowledge that one that must be loved is not a friend. There is not merit in loving an enemy when you forget him for a friend.
We do not know whether it is good to live or to die. Therefore, we should not take delight in living, nor should we tremble at the thought of death. We should be equiminded towards death.
A man of few words will rarely be thoughtless in his speech; he will measure every word.
Experience has taught me that silence is part of the spiritual discipline of a votary of truth.
Where there is possessiveness, there is violence.
