Stuck in the Smokehole of Our Tipi



















October 2 saw the birthday of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, better known as Mahatma Gandhi. The Indian luminary, famous for leading the Indian nation to independence in peaceful means, is deemed an inspirational figure to this day, over 60 years after his death in 1948. 

As a tribute to Gandhi, here’s a collection of some of his thought-provoking quotes. 

1. ON LIFE
"My life is my message."

2. ON BEING A SOLDIER
“I regard myself as a soldier, though a soldier of peace.“

3. ON FAITH IN HUMANITY
“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty."

4. ON NONVIOLENCE
“Nonviolence is the first article of my faith. It is also the last article of my creed.”

5. ON THE SEVEN SINS
“Seven social sins: politics without principles, wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality, science without humanity, and worship without sacrifice."

6. ON TRUTH
“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it. Truth stands, even if there be no public support. It is self sustained.”

7. ON THE "STILL SMALL VOICE"
The only tyrant I accept in this world is the 'still small voice' within me. And even though I have to face the prospect of being a minority of one, I humbly believe I have the courage to be in such a hopeless minority.”

8. ON LIBERTY
“I’m a lover of my own liberty, and so I would do nothing to restrict yours.”

9. ON FORGIVENESS
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” 

10. ON THE NATURE OF MAN
“A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes."

"..."Is violence ever justified?" he [Archbisop Desmond Tutu] talked about the process of truth and reconciliation, the transformative nature of forgiveness and the uniquely African concept of Ubuntu – 'I am me, because you are you', saying that when wars come to an end, only forgiveness enables people to fully move away from conflict."





"If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.     --- Eldridge Cleaver, Black Panther activist





"Because we all share this small planet Earth, we have to live in harmony and peace with each other and with nature.  That is not just a dream, but a necessity." --- Dalai Lama, Tibetan spiritual leader






Thank you Bob Krieger!  How Harper feels about universal health care.  It is time to retire the inglorious Harper before he sends us all to hell in a hand basket!











To be free




"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."



- Margaret Mead, anthropologist

    Dear Lynn - hope all is well at your end! Thanks for the great quote on my page which I can only answer with:

    "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former" (Albert Einstein).

    "Understanding" is unfortunately not in the books of the stupid ... big over to CDN - Eleonora
