"Recall the face of the poorest and the most helpless man whom you may have seen and ask yourself. If the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him, will he be able to gain anything by it? Will it restore him to a control over his own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to swaraj or self-rule for the hungry and also spiritually starved millions of our countrymen? Then you will find your doubts and yourself melting away."

Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Found at the entrance to Gandhi Memorial Park
