"My Life is My Message" - Mahatma Gandhi


Behind the Ferry Building in San Francisco is a promenade with tremendous views of the bay. It's especially inviting on a warm day when you can sit outside and begin to relax while listening to the sound of water lapping against the pier. In the midst of this outdoor setting, there's a statue of Mahatma Gandhi. The inscription beneath his thin frame dressed only in a skimpy robe and aided by a walking stick reads:
"Non violence is the greatest force at the disposal of Mankind.
It is the supreme law. By it alone can mankind be saved."


And right below his name and vital records is this quote:
"My Life is My Message".
