QUOTES: Ghandi on the roots of violence

via Ann on Facebook:
It's cool when my daughter sends me this link: sixty years ago Gandhi said the roots of all forms of violence are:
"Wealth without work, Pleasure without conscience, Knowledge without character, Commerce without morality, Science without humanity, Worship without sacrifice."

Here's another favorite Ghandi quote of mine:

“You Christians look after a document containing enough dynamite to blow all civilization to pieces, turn the world upside down, and bring peace to a battle-torn planet. But you treat it as though it is nothing more than a piece of good literature.”
