Thursday Quote

"Know and realize that your faculty is intended for the good of others. Learn lessons from nature. The various and innumerable products, roots, fruits, silver, gold, all lay themselves bare for the use of man. But man always absorbs but never gives. Let all learn and emulate form nature and resolve that life is to give and not to take."

-Swami Sivananda

Thursday Quote

“How often does a man ruin his disciples* by remaining always with them! When men are once trained, it is essential that their leader leave them, for without his absence they cannot develop themselves. Plants always remain small under a big tree.”

― Swami Vivekananda

*and, may we add, how often does a disciple ruin his chances at reaching The Goal by remaining too long with the guru (and expecting him/her to do their work for them).
