Swami Vivekananda Quotes
“Our life; dream of it; think of it;
live on that idea. Let the brain,
the body, 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,
and this is the way great spiritual giants are produced.
“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.”

without even the guidance of any one.
Stand up and express the divinity within you.”

Him within the covers of a little book!”

and whatever we wish ourselves to be,

our present actions;
so we have to know how to act.”
