A look at some inspirational quotes by Jawarharlal Nehru:
Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.
Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul.
At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. 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.
What we really are matters more than what other people think of us.
Politics and Religion are obsolete. The time has come for Science and Spirituality.
Evil unchecked grows, evil tolerated poisons the whole system.
