Vivekananda’s Quotes

 I am sharing with you some wonderful quotes of Swami Vivekananda . I got all these from the article titled “Fearless Monk” in the latest edition of The Speaking tree. Hope you would find them useful .  

1.       “Wait , money does not pay ,nor name ;fame does not pay, nor learning .It is love that pays ;it is character that cleaves its way through adamantine walls of difficulty.”

2.       He who is over-cautious of himself falls into dangers at every step; he who is afraid of losing honour and respect, gets only disgrace; he who is afraid of loss only loses….. 

3.       As a child ,I learnt ,as we all do, that convention and what everyone else thought ,mattered. Then ,I unlearned it. 

4.       Tell my friends that a uniform silence is all my answer to my detractors. If  I give them tit for tat ,it would bring me down to a level with them. Tell them that truth will take care of itself. 

5.       I will die a thousand deaths than lead a jelly-fish existence and yield to every requirement of this foolish world. 

6.       No man for long can occupy a position for which he is not fit .By doing well the duty which is nearest to us ,which is in our hands now, we make ourselves stronger and improving our strength in this manner ,we may reach a state  in which it shall be our privilege to do the most coveted duties…..

    That was a great collection for the youth today. The 4th one especially is suited to today’s world marred by violence and revenge.
