Quote from Mahatma Mohandas K. Gandhi,


"Non-violent resistance implies the very opposite of weakness.
Defiance combined with non-retaliatory acceptance
of repression from one's opponents is active, not passive.
It requires strength, and there is nothing automatic or intuitive
about the resoluteness required for using non-violent methods
in political struggle and the quest for Truth."
