Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day:
- I shall not fear anyone on Earth.
- I shall fear only God.
- I shall not bear ill will toward anyone.
- I shall not submit to injustice from anyone.
- I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.
― Mahatma Gandhi

An inspirational man and a unique blend of simple and complex. I never get tired of learning about him, especially since our visit to India. While we were in Mumbai, we visited Gandhi’s home and I took a few photos. He lived very simply, as you can see.
There are so many well-known Gandhi quotes, but here’s one I don’t see a lot. It’s one of my favorites.
