Swamy Vivekananda

Before the sun, the moon, the earth,
Before the Stars or comets free,
Before e'en Time has had its birth,
I was, I am, and I will be.


Conquer yourself and the whole universe is yours.

Make the heart like ocean, go beyond all the trifles of world, be mad with joy even at evil, see the world like a picture and then enjoy its beauty, knowing that nothing affects you.

Concentaration is a lamp that shows us every corner of knowledge.

We cannot see outside what we are not inside.

Neither seek nor avoid, take what comes.

They only do work who think that help will come, directly, they are on the field of work.

The true hero works in silence.

Love never fails, my son; today or tomarrow or ages after, Love will conquer! Do you love your fellow men?

If you fail thousand times, make the attempt once more.

Never mind failures; They are quite natural, they are the beauties of life, these failures. What would life be without them?

No great work is accomplished in this world by low cunning.

He is already in every work, in every thought, in every feeling.

When the whole universe sleeps, He sleeps not.

The whole universe is full of God and not of sin.

In every being He lives, through all minds He thinks.

This earth is higher than all heavens; this is the greatest school in the universe.

We see the world as we are.

If you think yourself strong, strong you will be.

Whatever you think that you will be.

To work I have the right. Mother knows the rest.

Strength is life, Weakness is death.

He alone is sinner who sees a sinner in another man.

The greatest sin is to think yourself weak.

Simplicity is the secret.

When you know yourself, you know all.

I was, I am , and I will be.

If you are pure, if you are strong, you, one man, are equal to the whole universe.

Out of purity and silence comes the word of power.

You were born to conquer nature and not to follow it.

Love makes the whole universe as one's own home.

Love immense and infinite, broad as the sky and deep as the ocean - this is one greatest gain in life. Blessed is he who gets it.

Love is the easiest of all, it waits for no logic, it is natural.

There is only one element in life, which is worth having at any cost, and it is Love.

The soul does not know; it is the knowledge itself.

Nobody ever created knowledge; Man brings it from within.

Knowledge itself is the highest reward of knowledge.

He, who can become mad with an idea, alone sees the Light.

Freedom already is.

Feeling is the soul, the secret of everything.

The moment you fear, you are nothing.

It is fear alone is death.
