Sri Ramakrishna Sayings

When a man is on the plains, he sees the lowly grass and the might pine and says “How big is the tree and how small is the grass!” But when he climbs the mountain and looks down from its high peak, the grass and the tree blend into one indistinguishable mass of greenness.

So, in the sight of worldly men there are differences of rank and one is a king and another cobbler; one is a father and another is a son; and so on.

But when the divine vision is attained, all appear equal; and there remains no distinction of good and bad, or high and low.
