I have lived a long life, and I am proud that I spend the whole of my life in the service of my people. I am only proud of this and nothing else. I shall continue to serve until my last breath, and when I die, I can say, that every drop of my blood will invigorate India and strengthen it [Indira Gandhi].
There are two kinds of people, those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there. [Indira Gandhi].
We do not wish to impoverish the environment any further, and yet we cannot for a moment forget the grim poverty of large numbers of people. Are not poverty and need the greatest polluters? [Indira Gandhi].
