Motivational Thoughts from Swami Vivekananda - Inspirational Quotes and Teachings of Swami Vivekananda

A collection of motivational thoughts, quotes and teachings from Swami Vivekananda. Anything (reference to fear of God, superstition) that makes you weak, physically, intellectually, spiritually, reject it as poison. It cannot be true. For Truth is strengthening. Truth is purity.

So, whenever we try to think of God as He is in His absolute perfection, we invariably meet with the most miserable failure
