Violence and non-violence

"Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary."
—M. K. Gandhi

"Non-violence doesn't always work — but violence never does."
—Madge Micheels-Cyrus

"There are only two forces in the world, the sword and the spirit. In the long run the sword will always be conquered by the spirit."
—Napoleon Bonaparte

Thanks for your comment Sankri.

Yes, Gandhi Jayanti day is the perfect day to contemplate Gandhi. In fact, i think that we should contemplate his principles every single day, not just on this birthday :)
