If your freedom hurts others, you are not free there. You must not hurt others.
(p.20, V.7, Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda, Inspired Talks,)
Our God is only a verbal affair. A little meditation, a little Japa this is a poor sort of life. The heart must burst hungering for Him. An intense anguish must fill it and life should seem to go out without Him – only then it will be right.
(p.101, Spiritual Talks, Swami Turiyananda.)
