Introduction
As an inspirational speaker I am often amazed by the power that lies in a single
quotation to transform someone’s life. Many times, I have felt recharged and
energized on reading the inspiring words of Swami Vivekananda. Good quotes,
though short, can be profound and have the power to transform one’s life and
one’s thoughts. Empowering quotes “I.N.S.P.I.R.E.” us to reach higher. They:

I nfuse positive energy and zest for life
N urture new ideas and visions
S ummarize complex concepts and ideologies
P rovide us with a new perspective of seeing things
I nspire us to have dreams
R eveal the mindsets of successful people
E ncourage us in times of despair

This book contains handpicked quotations by Swami Vivekananda thoughtfully
arranged in alphabetically ordered sections to remind us of our inner strengths
and abilities. I do hope the empowering quotes in this book will inspire you to
reach higher…
                                                                  -Amey Hegde
Attitude
It is our own mental attitude which makes the
world what it is for us. Our thought make things
beautiful, our thoughts make things ugly. The
whole world is in our own minds. Learn to see
things in the proper light.

We    must have friendship for all; we must be
merciful toward those that are in misery; when
people are happy, we ought to be happy; and to
the wicked we must be indifferent. These
attitudes will make the mind peaceful.
Belief in Self
Never think there is anything impossible for the
soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there
is sin, this is the only sin; to say that you are
weak, or others are weak.



If faith in ourselves had been more extensively
taught and practiced, I am sure a very large
portion of the evils and miseries that we have
would have vanished.
Concentration & Focus
The world is ready to give up its secrets if we
only know how to knock, how to give it the
necessary blow. The strength and force of the
blow come through concentration.


Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life -
think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the
brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body,
be full of that idea, and just leave every other
idea alone. This is the way to success.
Grumble Less, Work More
Those who grumble at the little thing that
has fallen to their lot to do will grumble at
everything. Always grumbling they will lead
a miserable life... . But those who do their
duty putting their shoulder to the wheel
will see the light, and higher and higher
duties will fall to their share.
Kindness & Service
Look upon every man, woman, and everyone as
God. You cannot help anyone, you can only serve:
serve the children of the Lord, serve the Lord
Himself, if you have the privilege.




Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping
hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless
your brothers, and let them go their own way.
Persistence
To    succeed you must have tremendous
perseverance, tremendous will. "I will drink the
ocean," says the persevering soul, "at my will
mountains will crumble." Have that sort of
energy, that sort of will, work hard, and you will
reach the goal.


Don't look back- forward, infinite energy, infinite
enthusiasm, infinite daring, and infinite patience -
then alone can great deeds be accomplished.
Positive Thinking
If you think about disaster, you will get it. Brood about
death and you hasten your demise. Think positively and
masterfully, with confidence and faith, and life becomes
more secure, more fraught with action, richer in
achievement and experience.




Fill the brain with high thoughts, highest ideals, place
them day and night before you, and out of that will come
great work.
Responsibility
Stand    up, be bold, be strong. Take the whole
responsibility on your own shoulders, and know that you
are the creator of your own destiny. All the strength and
succor you want is within yourselves. Therefore, make
your own future.


We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we
wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make
ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our
own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we
wish to be in future can be produced by our present
actions; so we have to know how to act.
Serve: Do good

Tt is only by doing good
to others that one attains
to one's own good.
