"Be true, be loyal to your pledges, to your sacred duty, to your
country, to your own conscience".
"You pride yourself on not being a patriot - I DO NOT - for, in learning
to love one's own country one but learns to love humanity the more".
"I do believe that where there is a choice only between cowardice and
violence, I would advise violence. ..... I would rather have India
resort to arms in order to defend her honor than that she should in a
cowardly manner become or remain a helpless witness to her own
Gandhi, Young India, August 11, 1920
"Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will
look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest."
