Sorry if this sounds sort of small -- but it was Ghandi who said, "An eye for an eye and pretty soon the whole world is blind."

Here's one I heard from a riding friend:

If you don't know where a road goes, that's a good reason to take it.

Good way to approach life too, there are too many sheep in the world too frightened to step out of line and take a chance.

You don't have to buy from anyone.
You don't have to work at any particular job.
You don't have to participate in any given relationship.
You can choose.
You alone steer the course you choose
in the direction of where you want to be today,
tomorrow or in any distant time to come.
You hold the tiller.

You can decide to alter the course of your life at any time.
No one can ever take that away from you.
You can decide what you want and go after it.
It's always your next move.

No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of our knowledge.

The teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness.

If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind.

Khalil Gibran - The Prophet - on the matter of teaching

Arum Gandhi's summary of his grandfather's-Mahatma Gandhi- philosophy per local newspaper:

Keep your thoughts positive,
because your thoughts become your words.
Keep your words positive,
because they become your behavior.
Keep your behavior positive,
because it becomes your habits.
Keep your habits positive,
because they become your values.
Keep your values positive,
because they become your destiny.

"An eye for an eye, and the whole world would be blind." - Kahlil Gibran

"An eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth and the world would be blind
and toothless." -Gandhi

Kahlil Gibran died in 1931, Gandhi in 1948. If anything, I might easily suggest that Gandhi
did little more than expand on what Gibran had already written.
