„It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our breasts, than to put on the cloak of non-violence to cover impotence. Violence is any day preferable to impotence. There is hope for a violent man to become non-violent. There is no such hope for the impotent.“
— Mahatma Gandhi pre-eminent leader of Indian nationalism during British-ruled India 1869 - 1948
