Selected Letters of Gandhi : Part-1


Chapter-18: Contentment

I remember you all very much during my Mysore tour because there were many more things which you could have seen than I could. My time for site-seeing is over. I can live only for the work I have in hand. It would be a sin for me to take a single breath of Mysore, her various institutions, her gardens, music and paintings are things for you to see. But we are helpless in the matter. We can hardly do all that we wish to do. If we could do everything at will, goodness knows how many worlds would already have been created and destroyed. Contentment is therefore the best of riches.
