A 'No' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'Yes' merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble. Mohandas Gandhi
I liked this piece of rhetoric because Gandhi is saying how important it is to stand to our convictions and what we know is right or wrong even it could put us in trouble.
Gandhi lead many peaceful movements and stood up against oppression even when it could put him in danger so he knows what he is talking about.
I also liked how he used the phrases "deepest conviction" and "merely uttered" because it helps to draw the picture of somebody standing firm as opposed to breaking and giving in.
