It does not matter who among us will live to see India free. It is enough that India shall be free and that we shall give our all to make her free.

It is blood alone that can pay the price of freedom. Give me blood and I will give you freedom.

No real change in history can be achieved by discussions.

Nationalism is inspired by the highest ideals of the human race, Satyam (the truth), Shivam ( the God), Sundaram (the beautiful).

Freedom is not given – it is taken.

Life loses half its interest if there is no struggle-if there are no risks to be taken.

Remember that the grossest crime is to compromise with injustice and wrong. Remember the eternal law: You must give if you want to get.

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.
