Inspirational quotes by Swami Vivekananda:
1. Many of the universe’s forces are now ours. We are the ones who have placed our hands over our eyes and cried out that it is dark.
2. We are the result of our emotions, so be careful what you say. The importance of words is secondary. Thoughts are alive and well, and they fly fast.
3. Take one idea and run with it. Make the one idea your life – think about it, dream about it, and live it. Allow the idea to fill your brain, muscles, nerves, and every other part of your body, while leaving all other ideas alone. This is how you get ahead.
4. Since oneness is the secret of all, all variations in this universe are of a degree, not a kind.
5. Money has some benefit if it enables an individual to do good to others; but, if it does not, it is simply a mass of evil, and the sooner it is eradicated, the better.
6. Those who put their heart and soul into something not only succeed at it, but they also know the ultimate truth—Brahman—through their immersion in it. God assists those who put their heart and soul into something.
7. Many of the universe’s forces are now ours. We are the ones who have placed our hands over our eyes and cried out, “It’s dark!” (Swami Vivekananda)
8. All searching is futile until we recognise the knowledge resides within us… Then we will know that the sun is rising and that the morning has arrived.
9. Astrology and all of these mystical phenomena are usually symptoms of a weakened mind; thus, as soon as they start to appear in our minds, we should consult a physician, eat well, and rest. (Swami Vivekananda)
10. The highest form of strength is to remain calm and stand on our own two feet. —Swami Vivekananda
11. A small group of heartfelt, genuine, and enthusiastic men and women can accomplish more in a year than a mob can in a century (Swami Vivekananda)
12. Many who complain about the smallest task that has been assigned to them will complain about everything. They would have a miserable life if they are always grumbling….
Those who do their job and put their shoulder to the wheel will see the sun, and they will be assigned higher and higher responsibilities. (Swami Vivekananda)
13. Any society’s greatest source of power is its belief in God. The day it abandons such confidence is the day humanity starts to perish. (Swami Vivekananda)
14. Feeling like Christ will make you a Christ; feeling like Buddha will make you a Buddha. It is feeling that gives life, power, and vitality to one’s life; without it, no amount of intellectual activity can bring one closer to God.
15. Be courageous, take courage, be proud of being an Indian, and boldly declare, “I am an Indian.” Take away my weakness, take away my unmanliness, and make me a man, because the Indian is my brother, my life, and the good of India is my good.(Swami Vivekananda)
16. Swami Vivekananda said, “Every man and woman tries to make the most of whatever power or advantage they have.”
17. Every work must go through these stages: mockery, resistance, and finally acceptance. Many who think ahead of their time would almost certainly be misunderstood.
