"All power is within you; you can do anything and everything. Believe in that, do not believe that you are weak; do not believe that you are half-crazy lunatics, as most of us do nowadays. You can do any thing and everything, without even the guidance of any one. Stand up and express the divinity within you."
"We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far. "
"Be not Afraid of anything. You will do Marvelous work. it is Fearlessness that brings Heaven even in a moment."
"Dare to be free, dare to go as far as your thought leads, and dare to carry that out in your life. "
"You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself."
"In a conflict between the heart and the brain, follow your heart. "
"Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life; dream of it; think of it; live on that idea. Let the brain, the body, muscles, nerves, every part of your body be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, and this is the way great spiritual giants are produced."
"You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul."
"They alone live, who live for others."
"Strength is Life, Weakness is Death. Expansion is Life, Contraction is Death. Love is Life, Hatred is Death."
"All love is expansion, all selfishness is contraction. Love is therefore the only law of life. He who loves lives, he who is selfish is dying. Therefore love for love's sake, because it is the only law of life, just as you breathe to live."
"Arise, awake, stop not till the goal is reached."
"Neither seek nor avoid, take what comes."
"The fire that warms us can also consume us; it is not the fault of the fire."
"Feel nothing, know nothing, do nothing, have nothing, give up all to God, and say utterly, 'Thy will be done.' We only dream this bondage. Wake up and let it go."
"Learn Everything that is Good from Others, but bring it in, and in your own way absorb it; do not become others."
"Was there ever a more horrible blasphemy than the statement that all the knowledge of God is confined to this or that book? How dare men call God infinite, and yet try to compress Him within the covers of a little book!"
"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 has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in the future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act."
"Do one thing at a Time, and while doing it put your whole Soul into it to the exclusion of all else."
"Each work has to pass through these stages—ridicule, opposition, and then acceptance. Those who think ahead of their time are sure to be misunderstood."
