We should have but one desire today - the desire to die so that India may live - the desire to face a martyr's death, so that the path to freedom may be paved with the martyr's blood.

Freedom is not given - it is taken.

No real change in history has ever been achieved by discussions.

It is blood alone that can pay the price of freedom. Give me blood and I will give you freedom!

One individual may die for an idea, but that idea will, after his death, incarnate itself in a thousand lives.

Men, money and materials cannot by themselves bring victory or freedom. We must have the motive-power that will inspire us to brave deeds and heroic exploits.

Life loses half its interest if there is no struggle-if there are no risks to be taken.

Soldiers who always remain faithful to their nation, who are always prepared to sacrifice their lives, are invincible.

Remember that the greatest crime is to compromise with injustice and wrong.

There is something in Mahatma Gandhi, which appeals to the maass of the Indian people. Born in another country he might have been a complete misfit.
