 That which looks for mercy from an opponent is not non-violence 
— Mahatma Gandhi
 Non-violent resistance implies the very opposite of weakness. Defiance combined with non-retaliatory acceptance of repression from one's opponents is active, not passive. It requires strength, and there is nothing automatic or intuitive about the resoluteness required for using non-violent methods in political struggle and the quest for Truth. 
— Mahatma Gandhi
 Non-violence is not a garment to be put on and off at will. Its seat is in the heart, and it must be an inseparable part of our very being. 
— Mahatma Gandhi

 Non-violence and cowardice are contradictory terms. Non-violence is the greatest virtue, cowardice the greatest vice. Non-violence springs from love, cowardice from hate. Non-violence always suffers, cowardice would always inflict suffering. Perfect non-violence is the highest bravery. Non-violent conduct is never demoralising, cowardice always is. 
— Mahatma Gandhi
