Gandhi, the movie

biography of  mohatmas gandhi, directed by richard attenborough, i watched this as a kid & it certainly struck a chord with me!

watched this again recently, it is an incredible epic film.  ben kingsley’s debut perfomance is excellent and i love the cameos by martin sheen & candice bergen.

favorite quotes from film:

albert einstein – ” future generations will scarce believe that such a one as this walked the earth in flesh and blood.”

mohatma gandhi – “happiness does not come from things, it comes from work and pride in what you do”

“Whenever I despair, I remember that the way of truth and love has always won. There may be tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they may seem invincible, but in the end, they always fail. Think of it: always.”
