  3. No real change in history can be achieved by discussions.
  4. One individual may die for an idea, but that idea will, after his death, incarnate itself in a thousand lives.
  5. Life loses half its interest if there is no struggle-if there are no risks to be taken.
  6. Men, money and materials cannot by themselves bring victory or freedom. We must have the motive-power that will inspire us to brave deeds and heroic exploits.
  7. The secret of political bargaining is to look more strong than what you really are.
  8. Never lose your faith in the destiny of India. There is no power on Earth which can keep India in bondage. India will be free and, that too, soon.
  9. Life loses half its interest if there is no struggle-if there are no risks to be taken.
  10. Forget not that the grossest crime is to compromise with injustice and wrong. Remember the eternal law: You must give, if you want to get.
