“We can do no great things, only small things with great love.” 

— Mother Teresa

“The ordinary man is all the time restless. When he begins to practice meditation, he is once in a while calm, most of the time restless. As he meditates more deeply, he becomes half the time calm, half the time restless. With longer, faithful practice, he is most of the time calm and only once in a while restless. As he perseveres, he reaches the state wherein he is always calm , never restless. Where motion ceases, God begins.”

–from “Inner Peace” by Paramhansa Yogananda

“The rich have a superfluous store of things they do not need and which are therefore neglected and wasted; while millions starve and are frozen to death for want of them. If each retained possession only of what he needed, none would be in want, all would live in contentment.”

–from “Mohanmala” by Mahatma Gandhi

 “Believe nothing, no matter where you read it or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.”

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”

“All that we are, is a result of what we have thought.”

— Gautam Buddha

 Ambition – “We cannot live happily by spiritual sustenance alone nor by material prosperity alone. It is only by having ambition and by crowning that ambition with the idea of service to others, either by helping them individually or by working for some great cause, that you will find a spiritual reason for making money for yourself and others. To help others to help themselves also spiritualizes ambition. An Almighty Power has linked us all together. Whenever you help others you are helping yourself.”

–A “para-gram” by Paramahansa Yogananda

“We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now is a result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act.”

–Swami Vivekananda
