Every work should be made thorough….. You need not insist upon preaching Shri Ramakrishna. Propagate his ideas first, though I know the world always wants the Man first, then the idea… Do not figure out big plans at first, but begin slowly, feel your ground, and proceed up and up. Work on, my brave boys. We shall see the light some day.
