Some Of Swami Vivekananda's Quotes

“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, that is way great spiritual giants are produced.”

• “We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act.”

• “YOU know, I may have to be born again, you see, I have fallen in love with mankind.”

• “The goal of mankind is knowledge ... Now this knowledge is inherent in man. No knowledge comes from outside: it is all inside. What we say a man 'knows', should, in strict psychological language, be what he 'discovers' or 'unveils'; what man 'learns' is really what he discovers by taking the cover off his own soul, which is a mine of infinite knowledge.”

• “Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin ? to say that you are weak, or others are weak.”

• “You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.”

• WE see that the apparent contradictions and perplexities in every RELIGION mark but different stages of growth. The end of all religions is the realizing of God in the soul . That is the one universal religion.”

• “The more we come out and do good to others, the more our hearts will be purified, and God will be in them.”

• “We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.”

• “GOD of truth, be Thou alone my guide…”

• “In one word, this ideal is that you are divine.”

• “You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.”

• “All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.”

• “Where can we go to find God if we cannot see Him in our own hearts and in every living being.”

• “The world is the great gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.”

• “The first sign of your becoming religious is that you are becoming cheerful”

• “As different streams having different sources all mingle their waters in the sea, so different tendencies various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to God.”

• “The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature. Have faith in yourselves!”

• “The Vedanta recognizes no sin it only recognizes error. And the greatest error, says the Vedanta is to say that you are weak, that you are a sinner, a miserable creature, and that you have no power and you cannot do this and that.”

• “If you think about disaster, you will get it. Brood about death and you hasten your demise. Think positively and masterfully, with confidence and faith, and life becomes more secure, more fraught with action, richer in achievement and experience.”
