    Gandhi's top10 fundamentals
    1. Change yourself.
    “You must be the change you want to see in the world.”
    “As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world - that is the myth of the atomic age - as in being able to remake ourselves.”

    2. You are in control.
    “Nobody can hurt me without my permission.”

    3. Forgive and let it go.
    “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
    “An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”

    4. Without action you aren’t going anywhere.
    “An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.”

    5. Take care of this moment.
    “I do not want to foresee the future. I am concerned with taking care of the present. God has given me no control over the moment following.”

    6. Everyone is human.
    “I claim to be a simple individual liable to err like any other fellow mortal. I own, however, that I have humility enough to confess my errors and to retrace my steps.”
    “It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.”

    7. Persist.
    “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

    8. See the good in people and help them.
    “I look only to the good qualities of men. Not being faultless myself, I won’t presume to probe into the faults of others.”
    “Man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow-men.”
    “I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.”

    9. Be congruent, be authentic, be your true self.
    “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
    “Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.”

    10. Continue to grow and evolve.
    ”Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position.”

    My favorite is definitely number 7.

    Here's another list of core concepts that is perhaps a little more practical if you're interested in engaging in Satyagraha - the True Power.

    1. Never confuse the person with the problem.

    2. Never use harmful means. Wrong means can never bring about a right end in the long run, while right means can never fail to bring about a right end even if it takes time, even if it is not the end we had in view.

    3. Never accept indignity, or inflict it.

    4. Always aim for longterm consequences.

    5. In our search for truth, we always give preference to concrete and constructive means.

    A final, rather mystical, thought from that other titan of nonviolence, Dr. King:
    “I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. And you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be.”
