"As we build our life, step by step, there is always a chance that we may now and then slip or fall. At such moments, let us forgive our own trespasses and learn to forget them. Let us forget to remember it and to worry over it! The glory of life is not in ‘never falling’, the true glory consists in ‘rising each time we fall’. Cheerfully let us rise up, courageously step on to the path and confidently march forward into fresh efforts with our head held high, proudly, with all confidence and full self-assurance."

"There is no happiness at all in any of the objects of the world. There is not an iota of happiness in objects, because they are insentient. Even the sensual pleasure is a reflection of the Atmic bliss only. It is sheer ignorance to think that we derive any pleasure from the sense-objects or from the mind. When there is a desire in the mind, the mind is filled with Rajas. It is in an agitated condition. It is restless and not peaceful. It will be restless till the desired object is attained."

"Appearances have reality in them, but reality is different from appearances. Appearances do not exist in the Absolute even as its adjectives, for it can have no adjectives other than itself."
