“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet”
Here, dirty feet refer to negative or corruptive thoughts. By taking himself as an example, Gandhiji tells us that we should never let anyone corrupt or fill our minds with negative thoughts. Our thoughts and choices must be our own and no one must have the power to manipulate or change them.
“The future depends on what we do in the present”
Our future is the product of our present. It will be positive and good if we perform positive activities in our present. On the other hand, it will not be positive and good if we do not perform positive activities in our present. Do good today, to get good tomorrow. Always perform good deeds and be kind to others.
“In a gentle way, you can shake the world”
Sometimes, being gentle is the answer. You don’t have to be aggressive in order to achieve something or make a buzz in the world. It can be done in a gentle and humble manner. You can achieve a lot in life by taking the gentle and humble approach, even more than you’ll achieve if you take the aggressive approach.
