Must I do all the evil I can before I learn to shun it? Is it not enough to know the evil to shun it? If not, we should be sincere enough to admit that we love evil too well to give it up.

My life is an indivisible whole, and all my attitudes run into one another; and they all have their rise in my insatiable love for mankind.
Non-violence is not a garment to be put on and off at will. Its seat is in the heart, and it must be an inseparable part of our very being.
Monotony is the law of nature. Look at the monotonous manner in which the sun rises. The monotony of necessary occupation is exhilarating and life giving.
The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world's problem.
I have learned through bitter experience the one supreme lesson to conserve my anger, and as heat conserved is transmitted into energy, even so our anger controlled can be transmitted into a power that can move the world.
Poverty is the worst form of violence.
Prayer is a confession of one's own unworthiness and weakness.
Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.
Rationalists are admirable beings, rationalism is a hideous monster when it claims for itself omnipotence. Attribution of omnipotence to reason is as bad a piece of idolatry as is worship of stock and stone believing it to be God. I plead not for the suppression of reason, but for a due recognition of that in us which sanctifies reason.
There are limits to self-indulgence, none to restraint.
Anger and intolerance are the twin enemies of correct understanding.
There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.
I have also seen children successfully surmounting the effects of an evil inheritance. That is due to purity being an inherent attribute of the soul.
I claim to be an average man of less than average ability. 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.
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
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.
It is easy enough to be friendly to one's friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business.
Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as is cooperation with good.
To believe what has not occurred in history will not occur at all, is to argue disbelief in the dignity of man.
As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world -- that is the myth of the atomic age -- as in being able to remake ourselves.
If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.
Purity of mind and idleness are incompatible.
Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy. Action is no less necessary than thought to the instinctive tendencies of the human frame.
God comes to the hungry in the form of food.
