A great inspiration!
This quote from the famous Mahatma Gandhi speaks of truth to its highest form.
In the first sentence, it involves the truth about you, the truth you know and speak, and the people around. You, of all people, knows who you really are deep down inside your mind and heart. No one except God can judge you, for no one else knows what runs in your mind and heart, unless you speak of it. When you choose to speak of that truth about yourself and any truth that you know, many people will always have something to say about it. Some will believe you, while others will not and even contradict what you have said. Today, the sad reality is that people will not just contradict you but judge you in your face and behind your back with other people who don’t know who you really are. Those people will get the wrong impression of the truth about you which is the worst case possible.
In the second sentence, Gandhi states that you should never apologize, that is absolutely correct. You never have to be sorry for showing and speaking what is true and correct. In fact, those people who have contradicted and judged the truth you speak of, are the ones who have to apologize for what they did. Maybe, they can escape from their wrong doings in the eyes of fellow-men but never in the eyes of God.
In the last sentence, Gandhi encourages you to be brave enough to speak what you know is right and true. Whatever your status in life, you should fight for the truth.
“The truth will set you free.”
“The truth will always prevail.”
