Gandhi did not exactly say that, that quote is paraphrased from a paragraph of one of his 98 volumes; Vol. 13, Ch. 153, page 241 to be exact. It goes like this:

"We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do."

Although he did not exactly say that, it was a message he conveyed through all of his works in many different forms. This volume was published in 1913.

Gandhi remains highly significant for the symbol of peace and because of the powerful force against oppression. . Gandhi said: 'YOU have the power to create the world you want.' Gandhi did not say, 'I will be the change'; he said YOU be the change you want to see in the world. Gandhi left the satyagraha which mean the pursuit of truth. Gandhi strongly influenced the thinking behind the non-violent struggle of the American civil rights leader, Martin Luther King. Nelson Mandela has also credited Gandhi's legacy with inspiring him during the great man's own long fight against the 'apartheid regime' in South Africa. Gandhi's death was dramatic, on the 30th January 1948 the man whom the Indian poet Tagore had named Mahatma was killed by shots from a pistol. His whole life he had preached a policy of non-violence.

Sad to say but you cannot change your username. You can change your password though! If you really want to change your username you would have to make a new account. I am sorry of those who want to change usernames :(..............................

It depends on what u want to change. Don't change everything all at once..all you need to do is talk to him about the things u want him to change, and give him an opportunity to say somethings that he might want to change about you. And don't come on to strong, just relax.

Go to "Select Profile". Then find the profile name you want to change. Somewhere (probably at the bottom of the screen) it should say to press a button to "Rename" profile- Do that. Then name what you want your profile to be named.

Gandhi wanted independence for the native people of India because he felt that the British colony was giving the native a raw deal in terms of land ownership and rights. He wanted Indians to have their own say in how political affairs are run.

When someone asks you if you want to live forever they mean to ask do you want to be remembered for eternity. People can't live forever but they memories they create live on. An example of a person that probably lived forever is Gandhi or Martin Luther King. Both these men are known through out the world and will be remembered in history. Their legacy and the ideas that they had will live on forever and their memory will stay in this world forever.

Usually they say that if you disagree with them or if they want you to change your mind about something. That is called pear-pressure.
