Here are the inspirational quotes by Swami Vivekananda:

  • 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
  • We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far
  • Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life -think of it, the 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
  • All differences in this world are of degree, and not of a kind because oneness is the secret of everything
  • If money helps 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.
