Gandhi on the Power of One

As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world as in being able to remake ourselves. — Mahatma Gandhi

Inspiration of the Day:
“There were many observers who said Gandhi was extraordinary, an exception to the limitations that hold back the rest of the human race. Others dismissed him — some with great respect, others with less — as just another great man who was leaving his mark on history. Yet, according to him, there was no one more ordinary. ‘I claim to be an average man of less than average ability,’ he often repeated. ‘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 fact is, while most people think of ordinariness as a fault or limitation, Gandhi had discovered in it the very meaning of life — and of history.” The late Gandhian scholar Eknath Easwaran shares further on Gandhi’s faith in the power of the individual.
