Gandhi quote: A 'No' uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a 'Yes' merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.

A 'No' uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a 'Yes' merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.
- Mohandas (Mahatma)
Gandhi

There is happiness and inner strength in being your own person.

Affirmation: I make my own choices. I decide what I will and will not do. I am proud of my independence.

Further reading: Joy is a Choice - but Not an Easy Choice

Mary Anne Radmacher: Your informed, “no,” to a particular service allows another to offer their gifted and unreserved, “yes.”
