inspiration = gandhi

many reasons, but this preface that accompanies each of his books and writings is a gem of the highest order:

I would like to say to the diligent reader of my writings and to others who are interested in them that I am not at all concerned with appearing to be consistent. In my search after Truth I have discarded many ideas and learnt many new things. Old as I am in age, I have no feeling that I have ceased to grow inwardly or that my growth will stop at the dissolution of the flesh. What I am concerned with is my readiness to obey the call of Truth, my God, from moment to moment, and therefore, when anybody finds any inconsistency between any two writings of mine, if he has still faith in my sanity, he would do well to choose the later of the two on the same subject.


Harijan. 29-4-'33. p.2

am currently reading the book which transformed gandhi - Unto this last.
thanks to nipun for pointing.
