A wish is a desire without energy – Paramahansa Yogananda

Always be ready to be active, but carry calmness with you into your activity.
Just as oil is present in every part of the olive, so love permeates very part of creation.
A wish is a desire without energy.
Seek to do brave and lovely things which are left undone by the majority of people.
Possession of material riches, without inner peace, is like dying of thirst while bathing in a lake.
Success should be measured by the yardstick of happiness; by your ability to remain in peaceful harmony with cosmic laws.
Paramahansa Yogananda
