to do the name of Rama in my childhood when there was any cause of danger or alarm. That was what an old nurse had taught me.

    Harijan, 14-5-1938, p. 109

    My aspiration is limited. God has not given me the power to guide the world on the path of non-violence. But I have imagined that He has chosen me as His instrument for presenting non-violence to India for dealing with her many ills. The progress already made is great. But much more remains to be done.

    Harijan, 23-7-1938, p. 193

    There is not a moment when I do not feel the presence of a Witness whose eye misses nothing and with whom I strive to keep in tune.

    Harijan 24-12-1938, p. 395

    I have never found Him lacking in response. I have found Him nearest at hand when the horizon seemed darkest—in my ordeals in jails when it was not all smooth sailing for me. I cannot recall a moment in my life when i had a sense of desertion by God.

    Harijan, 24-12-1938, p. 395

    Rightly or wrongly, I know that I have no other resource as a Satyagrahi than the assistance of God in every conceivable difficulty, and I would like it to be believed that what may appear to be inexplicable actions of mine are really due to inner promptings. It may be a product of my heated imagination. If it is so, I prize that imagination as it has served me for a chequered life extending over a period of now nearly over fifty-five years, because I learned to rely consciously upon God before I was fifteen years old.

    Harijan, 11-3-1939, p. 46
