All Men are Brothers: Autobiographical Reflections

4.12  ·  Rating details ·  397 Ratings  ·  17 Reviews
All Men Are Brothers is a compelling and unique collection of Gandhi's most trenchant writings on nonviolence, especially in the context of a post-nuclear world. This compendium, which reads like a traditional book - "Gandhi without tears" - is drawn from a wide range of his reflections on world peace. "It is not that I am incapable of anger, but ...more

This is a collection of excerpts spoken or written by Gandhi, split into chapters, divided by individual topics such as nonviolence, religion, brotherhood, women in society, etc.

Some parts are a bit repetitive and I did not really like how the excerpts were not sequential. They'd quote a passage from a speech Gandhi gave from the late '50s then the next one would be from the early '40s. The underlining message may be similar, but Gandhi was as human as the next and his views, ideals and even hi

(versi bahasa indonesia-nya..) menarik.

This one is a collection of quotations and passages from the Gandhi's writings. As before-mentioned it serves as an outstanding prolog to his ideas and values, there are many fascinating and inspiring quotations, remarkable hint at a restricted mind and a more human and flawed personality than the one held by conventional imagination. I recommend it, it is organized into the main statement of his teaching, We can create an idea of his belief in each division.
This book is infinitely inspiring! th

This is a collection of quotes and extracts from the main writings of Gandhi. As such it serves as an excellent introduction to his ideas and practices, there are many beautiful and inspiring quotes, some that hint at a closed mind and a more human and flawed character than the one held by popular imagination. Overall I would recommend it, it is organised into the main themes of his teaching, so you can build up an idea of his opinions in each chapter, unfortunately, due to the many sources this ...more
ابیاتی از کتاب همه مردم برابرند اثر مهاتما گاندی

من به کسانی که از مذهب خود با دیگران سخن می گویند و تبلیغ میکنند، مخصوصاً وقتی منظورشان این است که آنها را به دین خود در آورند، هیچ اعتقادی ندارم. دین و مذهب در گفتار نیست بلکه با کردار است و دراین صورت عمل هرکس خود عامل تبلیغ خواهد بود.

در حقیقت تنها خداوند از قلب اشخاص خبر دارد و به این جهت مطمئن ترین راه آنست که هیچ شخصی، چه زنده و چه مرده مورد ستایش قرار نگیرد و  فقط کمال الهی که همان حقیقت است مورد ستایش واقع شود.

"A não violência é a maior força que a humanidade tem à sua disposição.É mais poderosa do que a arma mais destrutiva que o Homem alguma vez inventou.A resistência passiva é uma espada com múltiplas virtudes.Sem fazer correr uma gota de sangue,obtém resultados extraordinários (...).A nossa não cooperação não se dirige nem aos ingleses nem ao Ocidente,mas ao sistema que os ingleses nos impuseram e à civilização materialista que encoraja a cobiça e a exploração dos mais fracos".

Interesting book. Gandhi's a lot less absolute about certain things like brahmacharya (celibacy) than I thought he would be. Although he would prefer a totally non-violent, pure, moral society, he comments that absolute abstinence from the world's temptations isn't easy for everyone. Gandhi unpacks a very compelling argument for non-violent non-cooperation.Very intriguing read.

Everyone should read this book and practice the things this great man experienced. I like that he was so humble and told us readers who he studied. I felt, when reading this, that the many things he talked about I do or felt. He put it into words for me and gave me something to strive towards.

"Se amiamo coloro che ci amano, questa non è non violenza. Non violenza è amare coloro che ci odiano".
Pensieri sparsi della Grande Anima che aprono il cuore e fanno riflettere su come sarebbe semplice vivere in questo mondo. Un altro di quei libri che sono tanto semplici quanto illuminanti.

"Un errore non diventa verità perché se ne moltiplica la diffusione, né la verità diventa errore perché nessuno la vede."
Ivan Savić
Početni deo knjige je biografski. Drugi deo je o njegovom učenju. I na kraju knjige je nekoliko njegova pisama. Najzanimljivije mi je što šalje pismo i Hitleru da prekine rat. Najveći deo knjige je o njegovim učenjima i pogledima na svet. Gandi piše dosta filozofski, da tako kažem. Puno se ponavlja i pomalo je nejasan i teže se prati. Bar je meni tako. Knjiga je ustvari sastavljena iz drugih njegovih spisa i knjiga pa možda i to malo narušava kontinuitet. Sa pola njegovih shvatanja se ne bih slo ...more

if you ask me what the book was like ?
well, it's like you're swimming to someone mind, beautifull mind, Gandhi's mind that always fight for grater goods, with ni intention to harm anyone but only his own mind.
somehow, I envy for those who lived and have a one or two talks with Gandhi or seeing him on the face.
Yes, just like Obama, i would like to hava an afternoon tea or Morning coffe chat with Gandhi

The son of a senior government official, Gandhi was born and raised in a Hindu Bania community in coastal Gu
