Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa Holy Thoughts

Sugar and sand are mixed together, but the ant rejects the sand and carries away the grains of sugar. So the holy Saints and pious men successfully sift the good from the bad.
There are pearls in the deep sea, but you must overcome all dangers to get them. If you fail to get at them by a single dive, do not conclude that the sea is without them. Dive again and again, and you are sure to be rewarded in the end. So also in the quest for the Lord, if your first attempt to see Him proves fruitless, do not lose heart.
If there is a small hole at the bottom of a jar of water, the whole water will lead out. Similarly if there is the smallest tinge of worldliness in the aspirant all his spiritual exertions will come to naught.
