The best gentleman that ever lived: Mahatma Ghandi

Mahatma Ghandi


Wanna know why?

was “gentle“ (sanft), not “noble“(ad(e)lig)

wouldn't have (hätte nie Konditionalsatz) killed a fly

never lifted a stone

never raised (erhob) his voice

spoke softly

had common sense and used it instead of violence

was respecful to everyone

was the father of “passive resistance“, that's fighting for your rights without using violence

never gave up in the face of adversity (angesichts von Widrigkeiten, also Schwierigkeiten)

was extremely successful: he overcame (besiegte) the British colonial empire so that India became (wurde!) independent (unabhängig)

 A perfect gentleman, really! Or did you think being a gentleman was about clothes?
