"Civil disobedience becomes a sacred duty when the state has become lawless or corrupt, and a citizen who barters with such a state shares in its corruption and lawlessness." "A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history." "Things that will destroy man: Politics without principle; pleasure without conscience; wealth without work; knowledge without character; business without morality; science without humanity; worship without sacrifice."
When asked his opinion of Western civilization, he said…
"I think it would be a good idea."
— Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi
