...........Stund up and fight! Not one step back, that is the idea...Fight it out, what ever comes. Let the stars move from the sphere! Let the whole world stand agaist us! Death means only a change of garment. What of it? Thus fight! You gain nothing by becoming cowards...Taking a step back ward, you do not any misforture. You have cried to all the gods in the world. Has misery ceased? The masses in India cry to sixty million gods, and still die like dogs. Where are these gods? ...THE GODS COME TO HELP YOU WHEN YOU HAVE SUCCEEDED. So what is the use ? Die game...This bending the knee to superstitions, this selling yourself to your own mind does not befit you, my soul. You are infinite, deathless, birthless. Because you are infinite spirit, it does not befit you to be a slave.....ARISE! AWAKE! Stand up and fight! Die if you must. There is no none to help you. You are all the world. Who can help you ?

- Bhagavad Gita as viewed by Swami Vivekanananda
