Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902) was Sri Ramakrishna’s primary follower and Vedanta’s world spokesman. His lectures, texts, letters and poems are released as Swami Vivekananda’s Complete Works. He felt that teaching universal principles rather than personalities was best, so in the Complete Works we find little mention of Ramakrishna.
1. “Take risks in your life, If you win, you can lead! If you loose, you can guide!
2 .“Strength is life; weakness is death.”
3.. “Experience is the only teacher we have. we may talk and reason all our lives, but we shall not understand a word of truth.”
4. “If you think yourselves strong, strong you will be.”
5.“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.”
