The Mind of Mahatma Gandhi

We stand today in danger of forgetting how to use our hands. To forget how to dig the earth and tend the soil is to forget ourselves. To think that your occupation of the Ministerial chair will be vindicated if you serve the cities only would be to forget that India really resides in her 7,00,000 village units. What would it profit a man if he gained the world but lost his soul into the bargain.”

from M. K. Gandhi “The Mind of Mahatma Gandhi (Compiled & Edited by R. K. Prabhu & U. R. Rao) ”
