  4. In a day, when you don't come across any problems - you can be sure that you are travelling in a wrong path.
  5. Experience is the only teacher we have. We may talk and reason all our lives, but we shall not understand a word of truth until we experience it ourselves.

  11. The education which does not help the common mass of people to equip themselves for the struggle for life, which does not bring out strength of character, a spirit of philanthropy, and the courage of a lion — is it worth the name? Real education is that which enables one to stand on one's own legs.
  12. Be a hero, always say, I have no fear!
  13. 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.
  14. Books are infinite in number and time is short. The secret of knowledge is to take what is essential. Take that and try to live up to it.
  15. The wind is blowing; those vessels whose sails are unfurled catch it, and go forward on their way, but those which have their sails furled do not catch the wind. Is that the fault of the wind?....... We make our own destiny.
  16. The world is the great gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.

  19. Experience is a far more glorious teacher than any amount of speculation, or any amount of books written by globe-trotters and hasty observers.
  20. All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.
  21. Great works are to be done, wonderful powers have to be worked out, we have to teach other nations many things… This is the motherland of philosophy, of spirituality, and of ethics, of sweetness, gentleness, and love. These still exist, and my experience of the world leads me to stand on firm ground and make the bold statement that India is still the first & foremost of all the nations of the world in these respects.
  22. In one word, this ideal is that you are divine.
  23. All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.

  29. Work purifies the heart and so leads to wisdom…Virtuous deeds take off the veil from knowledge, and knowledge alone can make us see God.
  30. Knowledge is power, and getting one you get the other. By knowledge you can even banish the material world.
  31. Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man. Religion is the manifestation of the Divinity already in man. Therefore the only duty of the teacher in both cases is to remove all obstructions from the way. Hands off! as I always say, and everything will be right. That is, our duty is to clear the way. The Lord does the rest.
  32. You are the creator of your own destiny.
  33. Strength is life weakness is death.

  35. God is to be worshipped as the one beloved, dearer than everything in this and next life. 
  36. Two gifts are especially appreciated, the gift of learning and the gift of life. But the gift of learning takes precedence. One may save a man's life, and that is excellent; one may impart to another knowledge, and that is better.

  39. Knowledge is nothing but finding unity in the midst of diversity.
  40. The gift of knowledge is a far higher gift than that of food and clothes; it is even higher than giving life to a man, because the real life of man consists of knowledge.
  41. 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.
  42. The greatest truths are the simplest things in the world, simple as your own existence.

  44. Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways, yet each one can be true.
  45. Existence without knowledge and love cannot be; knowledge without love and love without knowledge cannot be. What we want is the harmony of Existence, Knowledge, and Bliss Infinite. For that is our goal. We want harmony, not one-sided development.
  46. If money help a man to do good to others, it is of some value; but if not, it is simply a mass of evil, and the sooner it is got rid of, the better.
