Swami Vivekananda on Intellect which is a Burden

Swami Vivekananda: I am the disciple of a man who could not write his own name, and I am not worthy to undo his shoes. How often have I wished I could take my intellect and throw it into the Ganges!

Student: But, Swami, that intellect is the part of you I like best.

Swami Vivekananda: That is because you are a fool, Madam, like I am.
