Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902)

Swami Vivekananda

Few quotes on the occasion of his birthday

'Arise, awake stop not until goal is reached '

'First, believe in the world—that there is meaning behind everything'

'Don't look back—forward, infinite energy, infinite enthusiasm, infinite daring, and infinite patience—then alone can great deeds be accomplished.'

'This is the first lesson to learn: be determined not to curse anything outside, not to lay the blame upon anyone outside, but stand up, lay the blame on yourself. You will find that is always true. Get hold of yourself '

' Tell the truth boldly, whether it hurts or not. Never pander to weakness. If truth is too much for intelligent people and sweeps them away, let them go; the sooner the better '
