Secret of greatness.- Swami Vivekananda.

Faith, sympathy, fiery faith, fiery sympathy! Faith, faith, faith in ourselves... faith, faith in God - this is the secret of greatness.- Swami Vivekananda.
1. men should be taught to be practical, physicallystrong. A dozen such lions will conquer the world, not millions of sheep.
2. I want iron wills and hearts that do not know how to quake.
3. You may meditate on whatever you like, but i shall meditate on heart of a lion. That gives strength.
stop becoming weak
1. Strength, Strength, it is that we want so much in this life, for what we call sin and sorrow have all one cause and that is our weakness.with weakness comes ignorance, and with ignorance comes misery.

2. Never be weak. You must be strong. you have infinite strength within you.

3. Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is a sin, this is the only sin - to say that you are weak.

4. The only saint is that soul that never weakens and faces everything.

5. All weakness, all bondage is imagination. .. do not weaken!...Stand up and be strong! that is all the religion I know.

6. Know that all sins and all evils can be summed up in that one word,weakness. It is weakness that is the motive power in all evil-doing; It is the weakness that is the source of all selfsishness; it is weakness that makes men injure others; it is weakness that makes them manifest what they are not in reality.

7. The weak have no place here, in this life or any other life.weakness leads to slavery. Weakness leads to all kinds of misery, physical and mental. weakness is death. There are hundreds and thousands of microbes surrounding us, but they cannot harm us unless we become weak, until the body is ready and predisposed to receive them. There may be a million microbes of misery floating about us. Never mind! they dare not approach us, they have no power to get a hold on us, until mind is weakened.

8. This is great fact; strength is life, weakness is death. strength is felicity, life eternal, immortal; weakness is constant strain and misery; weakness is death.
