There aren’t many in this world who don’t know of Gandhi and his triumphant legacy.

A champion of nonviolence, Mohandas Gandhi served as a political and spiritual leader of India during the Indian independence movement. Through his work, he proved the power of civil disobedience when combined with the philosophy of ahimsa — a Sanskrit word meaning non-violence and compassion towards all beings.

Gandhi was a passionate advocate for human and animal rights and even lived in a self-sufficient residential community. What a green rockstar, right?

On this second day of October, we honor the man with the plan as we celebrate his life and the lessons he shared with the world. In loving memory, here are a few of Gandhi’s most famous quotes:

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”
“A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.”
“Anger is the enemy of non-violence and pride is a monster that swallows it up.”
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
“You must be the change that you want to see in the world.”

Happy Birthday, G!
