The quote on this button is attributed to Mahatma Gandhi, leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India, who inspired movements for freedom and civil rights across the world.  The quote implies that responsibility begins and ends with one’s own behavior. According to a 2011 article in the New York Times, there is no reliable documentary evidence for the quotation. The closest matching quote is “If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him…We need not wait to see what other do.”
