Great convictions are the mothers of great deeds — Swami Vivekananda

Few teaching of Swami Vivekananda
Great convictions are the mothers of great deeds.
Religion does not depend on our intellectual assent or dissent. You say there is a soul. Have you seen the soul? How is it we all have souls and do not see them? You have to answer the question and find out the way to see the soul. If not, it is useless to talk of religion. If any religion is true, it must be able to show us the soul and show us God and the truth in ourselves.
It is impossible to formulate any system of education without having a definite conception of the nature, the inner potentialities of the being we want to educate and train.
What we say a man ‘knows’, should, in strict psychological language, be what he ‘discovers’ or ‘unveils’; what a man ‘learns’ is really what he ‘discovers’, by taking the cover off his own soul, which is a mine of infinite knowledge.
Swami Vivekananda
