Each Wednesday for the majority of 12 years (from 1919 to 1931), future five-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Mahatma Gandhi published “Young India,” an English-language journal that encouraged his followers to utilize nonviolent tactics for bettering their political and social status. His streak was interrupted when a pair of articles procured him a six-year prison sentence in Bombay (now Mumbai) for sedition.

In an April 1931 issue, the lawyer, politician, and activist introduced the above wisdom. By refusing to hold grudges against even the most hostile forces, Gandhi cultivated his characteristic resilience.
