Violent Quotations

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
Albert Einstein

Mahatma Gandhi

John F. Kennedy

A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.
Thomas Jefferson

Violent means will give violent freedom. That would be a menace to the world and to India herself.
