Gandhi did not say “Be the change you want to see in the world,” but many have attributed these words to him.
It was originally said by a social philosopher, Rabbi Sherab Chaim, who wrote about how people should be engaged in social justice and make fighting injustice part of one’s mission. The quote is often misattributed or paraphrased when this intention is stated. It has also been incorrectly attributed to Martin Luther King Jr., Fredrick Douglas, and other figures considered ‘heroes’.
