Vivekananda Quote 1

1. Quote

You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.


Children, God has created us and he is within us too. So, if we don’t believe in ourselves, our abilities, and our potential, it means that we do not have faith in God.


Vivekananda Quote 2

2. Quote

In a conflict between the heart and the brain, follow your heart.


Children, when there is confusion between the heart and the brain, let the heart be followed. The heart can feel things that the brain can never reach like inspiration. For instance, your friends invite you to a party, but your pet is sick at home and needs care. Your brain wants you to go to the party, but your heart says to stay with your pet. In such a situation, you should listen to your heart and stay home to take care of your pet.

Vivekananda Quote 3

3. Quote

Arise! Awake! And stop not until the goal is reached.


Children, we should not give up on our dreams if we fail to achieve them at once. Instead, have the courage to fight back and keep trying, no matter how many difficulties come in between, until the goal is reached. 

Vivekananda Quote 4

4. Quote

Everything is easy when you are busy. But nothing is easy when you are lazy.


Children, when we keep ourselves busy, we stay motivated and focused. It keeps us distracted from our problems and helps us maintain a positive attitude towards our lives. Whereas, when we are lazy, even simple tasks can become difficult to do.

Vivekananda Quote 5

5. Quote

Learn everything good from others, but bring it in, and in your own way absorb it, don’t become others.


Children, learning good things from other people is an important part of life but we should never lose our identity. Learning should make us a better version of ourselves and not duplicate the ones we are learning from. Losing our identity is like becoming a stranger to ourselves. 



Vivekananda Quote 6

6. Quote

All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.


Children, darkness exists when we put our own hands before our eyes. As we remove our hands, we will be able to see the light, which was always. God has blessed us with immense power to achieve anything, we just need to discover that power by removing our weaknesses. For instance, when Lord Hanuman had to cross the ocean to save Goddess Sita from the cruel Ravana, he was reminded of his forgotten ability to fly. Later, a confident Hanuman flew off and met Sita in Lanka.

7. Quote

Ask nothing, want nothing in return. Give what you have to give, and it will come back to you but don’t think of that now.


Children, we should always do good things and help people in need. But we should never ask for anything in return. If you helped your friend in your studies, you should never expect a gift in return. God is always watching your good actions and will surely bless you.




Vivekananda Quote 8

8. Quote

Take risks in your life. If you win, you can lead; if you lose, you can guide.


Children, it is very important to try new things in life. If you succeed, you can be a leader. Whereas if you lose, you can advise others to follow the right path.

9. Quote

If I love myself despite my infinite faults, how can I hate anyone at the glimpse of a few faults?


Children, everyone makes mistakes like us. But, if we can love ourselves even after that, we should forgive others for their faults too. Like if your friend has made a mistake, we should forgive him/her and move on.


Vivekananda Quote 10

10. Quote

Who is helping you, don’t forget them.

Who is loving you, don’t hate them.

Who is believing you, don’t cheat them.


Children, we should never forget those people who help us because they are always going to be there for us. We should always be grateful to our teachers as they help us in our studies. We should always love the people who love us, like our parents. We should never break the trust of our true friends who believe in and support us.
