I will give you a talisman. Whenever you are in doubt or when the
self becomes too much with you, apply the following test:
Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may
have seen and ask yourself if the step you contemplate is going to be
of any use to him. Will he gain anything by it? Will it restore him
to a control over his own life and destiny? In other words, will it
lead to swaraj for the hungry and spiritually starving millions?
Then you will find your doubts and your self melting away.
— Mahatma Gandhi
