Jawaharlal Nehru

* A leader or a man of action in a crisis almost always acts subconsciously and then thinks of the reasons for his action.

* A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new; when an age ends; and when the soul of a nation long suppressed finds utterance.

* Action itself, so long as I am convinced that it is right action, gives me satisfaction.

* Action to be effective must be directed to clearly conceived ends.

* Crises and deadlocks when they occur have at least this advantage, that they force us to think.

* Culture is the widening of the mind and of the spirit.

* Democracy is good. I say this because other systems are worse.

* Every little thing counts in a crisis.

* Great causes and little men go ill together.

* I have become a queer mixture of the East and the West, out of place everywhere, at home nowhere.

* Ignorance is always afraid of change.

* It is only too easy to make suggestions and later try to escape the consequences of what we say.

* It is the habit of every aggressor nation to claim that it is acting on the defensive.

* Life is like a game of cards. The hand you are dealt is determinism; the way you play it is free will.

* Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.

* The art of a people is a true mirror to their minds.

* The only alternative to coexistence is co-destruction.

* The person who runs away exposes himself to that very danger more than a person who sits quietly.

* The policy of being too cautious is the greatest risk of all.

* We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.

* What we really are matters more than what other people think of us.

* Time is not measured by the passing of years but by what one does, what one feels, and what one achieves.

* Loyal and efficient work in a great cause, even though it may not be immediately recognized, ultimately bears fruit.
