Gandhi’s “7 Blunders of the World”

Hyde (Bath) faculty member Baxter Bullock recently sent me an interesting piece he came across.  Shortly before his assassination in 1948, Mahatma Gandhi apparently scribbled a note to his grandson called “The Seven Blunders of the World.”  Here’s what he wrote:

1. Wealth without work;

2. Pleasure without conscience;

3. Knowledge without character;

4. Commerce without morality;

5. Science without humanity;

6. Worship without sacrifice;

7. Politics without principle.

Words to live by.  ‘Nuff said.
