We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different, and yet the same.
For the world to be peaceful, we have to be peaceful within ourselves.
Without the assistance of the Divine Being, I cannot succeed. With that assistance, I cannot fail.
I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something I can do.
Edward Everett Hale
Be not afraid of growing slowly. Be afraid only of standing still.
O son of Bharata, as the sun alone illuminates all this universe, so does the living entity, one within the body, illuminate the entire body by consciousness.
Krishna in the Bhagavad-gita
We can do no great things—only small things with great love.
Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.
All prayers are answered. We need to distinguish between a prayer unanswered and one not answered how or when we would like it to be.
A person who is not disturbed by the incessant flow of desires—that enter like rivers into the ocean which is ever being filled but is always still—can alone achieve peace, and not the man who strives to satisfy such desires.
