Swami Vivekanand speaks

My faith is in the younger generation, the modern generation, out of them will come my workers. They will work out the whole problem, like lions. I have formulated the idea and have given my life to it. They will spread from centre to centre, until we have covered the whole of India.
Ordinary mankind cannot understand anything that is subtle. Well has it been said that mobs would run after a lion that could kill a thousand lambs, and never for a moment think that it is death unto the lambs, although it may be a momentary triumph for the lion; because in that the mob finds the greatest manifestation of physical strength. Thus with the ordinary run of mankind, they understand and find pleasure in everything that is external.
When the soul wants to depend upon nothing, not even upon life, that is the height of philosophy, the height of manhood.

Seek only after one thing, and that, God!
-Swami Vivekananda.
