"The Mahatma, the Great Soul, endures in the best part of our minds, where our ideals are kept: the embodiment of human rights and the creed of nonviolence. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is something else, an eccentric of complex, contradictory and exhausting character
most of us hardly know. It is fashionable at this fin de siecle to use the man to tear down the hero, to expose human pathologies at the expense of larger-than-life achievements. No myth raking can rob Gandhi of his moral force or diminish (his) remarkable importance."
– Time Magazine, Dec. 31, 1999 naming Gandhi as runner up "Person of the Century" after Albert Einstein
"Generations to come, it may be, will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth."
– Albert Einstein
"If humanity is to progress Gandhi is inescapable."
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
