Swami Vivekananda

We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.More Swami Vivekananda [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More Swami Vivekananda [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More Swami Vivekananda [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

God is to be worshipped as the one beloved, dearer than everything in this and next life.More Swami Vivekananda [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
