DAY-TO-DAY WITH GANDHI-VI
12

    "Financial security is an obstacle ( to an institution doing public service ). That institution is a mushroom which gets at its very start, ample funds and numerous workers. ( p. 27 )

    "Sterling character is a sine qua non of a good teacher." ( p. 29 )

    "Blind obedience to my advice will do you no good." (p.34)

    "It is a misfortune that we ( Indians ) do not demand the same high standard of fidelity in love and behaviour for men as for women." ( p. 42 )

    "When 'seva' ( service ) wags its tongue, it loses all its value." ( p. 148 )

    "I make bold to say that Buddha was not an atheist&Splendid philosophy in action—that is Buddha's teaching. It is preeminently a religion of the masses. Buddhism has not been banished from India. We in India translate Buddhism far more in practice than the Burmese." ( p. 260-261 )

    But let me not try the reader's patience too long.
