Here are some quotes, messages, and speeches from Gandhiji that you can share among loved ones:

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

A man is but a product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

Be the change you want to see in the world.

The future depends on what we do in the present.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win

Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed.

Service which is rendered without joy helps neither the servant nor the served.

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.
