This page will be updated as and when I come across something useful and meaningful. Drop in a comment if you were to come across something nice and pleasant.

1. Do not be very upright in your dealings for you would see by going to the forest that straight trees are cut down while crooked ones are left standing.

– Chanakya (Vishnugupta aka Kautilya)

2. Never make friends with people who are above or below you in status. Such friendships will never give you any happiness.

– Chanakya (Vishnugupta aka Kautilya)

3. The biggest guru-mantra is: never share your secrets with anybody. It will destroy you.

– Chanakya (Vishnugupta aka Kautilya)

4. You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger

-Bhagwan Buddha

5. Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

-Bhagwan Buddha

6. A few heart-whole, sincere, and energetic men and women can do more in a year than a mob in a century.

-Swami Vivekananda

7. Astrology and all these mystical things are generally signs of a weak mind; therefore as soon as they are becoming prominent in our minds, we should see a physician, take good food, and rest.

-Swami Vivekananda

8. Be strong! Don’t talk of ghosts and devils. We are the living devils. The sign of life is strength and growth. The sign of death is weakness. Whatever is weak, avoid! It is death. If it is strength, go down into hell and get hold of it! There is salvation only for the brave.

-Swami Vivekananda

9. The essence of Vedanta is that there is but one Being and that every soul is that Being in full, not a part of that Being.

-Swami Vivekananda

10. It is better to perform one’s own duties imperfectly than to master the duties of another. By fulfilling the obligations he is born with, a person never comes to grief.

-Lord Krishna (The Bhagavad Gita)

11. Ekam sat viprah bahudha vadanti

-Rig Veda

12. True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.

-Arthur Ashe
