Experience is the only source of knowledge – Swami Vivekananda

The goal of mankind is knowledge. Pleasure is not the goal of man, but knowledge. Pleasure and happiness come to an end. The cause of all the miseries we have in the world is that men foolishly think pleasure to be the ideal to strive for. After a time man finds that it is not happiness, but knowledge, towards which he is going, and that pleasure and pain are great teachers, and that he learns as much from evil as from good.

Experience is the only source of knowledge.

Any system which seeks to destroy individuality is in the long run disastrous.

Each life has a current running though it, and this current will eventually take it to God.
