“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” ~Mahatma Gandhi
I have often pondered this question: If I could meet any historical figure, who would I choose? My answer has varied a lot throughout the course of my life. I must say though, that in recent years, my answer has been the same: Mahatma Gandhi.
I have read a great deal about Gandhi over the past few years and I find his story to be absolutely fascinating. He believed strongly in expanding human being's capacity to love and to give. He also believed very strongly in devoting oneself to helping others. I find that incredibly inspirational. He believed that it was a privilege to give. What a wonderful way to think of giving.He also was a strong believer in peace. It was his dream to see peace in the world. I can only hope that someday his dream may become a reality.
What about you? If you could meet any historical figure, who would you choose?
