Nonviolence is for the strong

Author: Ghandi

Nonviolence is for the strong. I will not preach nonviolence to a mouse to the point of being devoured by a cat. The weak have no option but violence or passive resistance. I am preaching nonviolence in India because I don’t see why 300 million people should be afraid of 150,000 British troops. They are the strong. They should thus use nonviolence to achieve their political goals.

The Law of Love

Book: My Faith in Nonviolence - The Power of Nonviolence: Writings by Advocates of Peace, Page #46

The law of love will work, just as the law of gravitation will work, whether we accept it or not.
