First, have faith in yourselves. Know that though one may be a little bubble and another may be a mountain-high wave, yet behind both the bubble and the wave there is the infinite ocean. Therefore there is hope for everyone. There is salvation for everyone.
(p.444-5. Vol.3, Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda, from Swamiji’s introduction to Sister Nivedita’s lecture at the Star Theatre on 11 March,1898.)
