Excess

Excessive merriment will always be followed by sorrow. Tears and laughter are near kin. People so often run from one extreme to the other. Let the mind be cheerful, but calm. Never let it run to excesses, because every excess will be followed by a reaction.

Internal and External Force - Famous Quotes, Love Quotes

The external and internal natures are not two different things; they are really one. Nature is the sum total of all phenomena. Nature means all that is, all that moves. We make tremendous distinction between matter and mind; we think that mind is entirely different from matter. Actually, they are but one nature, half of which is continually acting on the other half. Matter is pressing upon the mind in the form of various sensations. These sensations are nothing but force. The force from the outside evokes the force within. From the will to respond to or get away from the outer force, the inner force becomes what we call thought.

Both matter and mind are really nothing but forces; and if you analyze them far enough, you will find that at root they are one. The very fact that the external force can somehow evoke the internal force shows that somewhere they join each other, they must be continuous and therefore, basically the same force. When you get to the root of things, they become simple and general. Since the same force appears in one form as matter and in another form as mind, there is no reason to think matter and mind are different. Mind is changed into matter, matter is changed into mind. Thought force becomes nerve force. Nature is all the force, whether expressed as matter or mind.

The difference between the subtlest mind and the grossest matter is only one of degree. Therefore the whole universe may be called either mind or matter, it does not matter which. You may call the mind refined matter, or the body concretized mind; it makes little difference by which name you call which. All the troubles arising from the conflict between materialism and spirituality are due to wrong thinking. Actually, there is no difference between the two.

Religion

Books never create religion, but religion makes books.
- Vivekananda


Our words have weight. They can inspire us to live a better life, to help one another or to rise above our present situation. Think of one of the great quotes by JFK, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can dofor your country.". If we have any hopes of making our world a
better place, our education should come from history and from the people who made history great. If you need help, you can start with an online college degree program. Your future awaits.

Blame

Blame neither man, nor God, nor anyone in the world. When you find yourself suffering, blame yourselves, and try to do better.

- Vivekananda

Nature

Nature is the quality of the plant, the quality of the animal, and the quality of man. Man’s life behaves according to definite method; so does his mind. Thoughts do not just happen; there is a certain method in their rise, existence, and fall. In other words, just as external phenomena are bound by law, internal phenomena, that is to say, the life and the mind of man are also bound by the law.

This mind is like a lake, and every thought is like a wave upon that lake. Just as the lake-waves rise and then fall down and disappear, so these thought-waves are continually rising in the mind-stuff and then disappearing, but they do not disappear forever. They become finer and finer, but they are there, ready to start up another time when called upon to do so. Memory is simply calling back into wave-form some of these thoughts which have gone into that finer state of existence. Thus, everything that we have thought, every action that we have done, is lodged in the mind; it is all there in fine form, and when a man dies, the sum total of these impressions and the fine body, passes out, and the destiny of the soul is guided by the resultant of all the different forces represented by the different impressions.

- Vivekananda

Love quotes, inspirational quotes and life sayings are all the result of life stories.  If you have a good love story, you can probably write a good quote out of the experience.  Think of all your best school stories, wedding night stories, romance and other survival stories for inspiration.

Virtues

No man should be judged by his defects. The great virtues a man has are his especially; his errors are the common weaknesses of humanity and should never be counted in estimating his character.

- Vivekananda

Knowledge

The highest demonstration of reasoning that we have in any branch of knowledge can only make a fact probable, and nothing further. The most demonstrable facts of physical science are only probabilities, not facts yet. Facts are only in the senses. Facts have to be perceived, and we have to perceive religion to demonstrate it to ourselves. We have to sense God to be convinced that there is a God. We must sense the facts of religion to know that they are facts. Nothing else, and no amount of reasoning, but our own perception can make these things real for us, can make my belief firm as a rock.
