You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself. "
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.
By the study of different RELIGIONS we find that in essence they are one.
GOD is the ever-active providence, by whose power systems after systems are being evolved out of chaos, made to run for a time and again destroyed.
GOD is to be worshipped as the one beloved, dearer than everything in this and next life.
If faith in ourselves had been more extensively taught and practiced, I am sure a very large portion of the evils and miseries that we have would have vanished.
If you think about disaster, you will get it. Brood about death and you hasten your demise. Think positively and masterfully, with confidence and faith, and life becomes more secure, more fraught with action, richer in achievement and experience.
Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.
Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on 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.
That man has reached immortality who is disturbed by nothing material.
The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature. Have faith in yourselves!

The Vedanta recognizes no sin it only recognizes error. And the greatest error, says the Vedanta is to say that you are weak, that you are a sinner, a miserable creature, and that you have no power and you cannot do this and that.
The will is not free - it is a phenomenon bound by cause and effect - but there is something behind the will which is free.
The world is the great gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.
Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways, yet each one can be true.
We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary.
Thoughts live; they travel far.
When an idea exclusively occupies the mind, it is transformed into an actual physical or mental state.
