Man easily capitulates when sin is presented in the garb of virtue – Gandhiji

Man must choose either of the two courses, the upward or the downward; but as he has the brute in him, he will more easily choose the downward course than the upward, especially when the downward course is presented to him in a beautiful garb. Man easily capitulates when sin is presented in the garb of virtue.
Life is greater than all art. I would go even further and declare that the man whose life comes nearest to perfection is the greatest artist; for what is art without the sure foundation and framework of a noble life?
Literacy must be one of the many means of intellectual development, but we have had in the past intellectual giants who are unlettered.
