One of my friends praised Swamiji in a low voice.
Swamiji: Do not praise me. Praise and censure have no value in this world of ours. They only rock a man as if in a swing. Praise I have had enough of; showers of censure I have also had to bear; but what avails thinking of them! Let everyone go on doing his own duty unconcerned. When the last moment arrives, praise and blame will be the same to you, to me, and to others. We are here to work, and will have to leave all when the call comes
- Swami Vivekananda
THINK OF DEATH ALWAYS AND NEW LIFE WILL COME WITHIN —WORK FOR OTHERS — GOD THE LAST REFUGE
