Indira Gandhi

19 Nov 1917 // 31 Oct 1984


We have to be willing to forge out our own path, make our own mistakes and learn from our own mistakes, and from the mistakes go on to achievement.
In solving our problems, we should beware of creating worse ones.


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
