    Dear Sir,

    Thank you for sharing this very powerful quote by Swami Vivekananda.

    I never tire of reading this quote by Mr. Bob Moawad:

    “The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey – and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.”

    Thanks and regards,

    many thanks for a lovely quote. on the same OSHO says Man contains oceans of bliss. We are born with infinite wisdom but we go on losing our wisdom in collecting knowledge. knowledge is rubbish, it is mundane, it is trivia. nice to read a lovely quote every morning and trying to adopt it in real life. ajay.


    • Dilip says:

      Hi Ajay I always find your comments very inspiring – and how true it is not a collection of knowledge that brings us peace it is wisdom within us that we need to seek to enter into the oceans of bliss ..

      Thanks and regards

      Dear Sir,

      I really like what you have said about Wisdom. Thank you!

      And I also like the way the great author Andy Andrews has written about Wisdom in his latest book, ‘The Final Summit’:

      “Michelangelo carved with wisdom. Mahalia Jackson sang with wisdom. Charles Dickens wrote with wisdom. Helen Keller taught with wisdom. Rembrandt painted with wisdom. Orville and Wilbur imagined with wisdom.

      “I believe that wisdom, when harnessed over time, leads ordinary people in incredible directions. Long before their hands or voices produce greatness, wisdom shapes their minds and hearts.

      “If we will only be patient and open, wisdom will reach out to us even from the Almighty’s backyard. Mountains teach stability. The sun and the moon model faithfulness. The seas demonstrate our capacity to change. Even the tiny ant shows us about teamwork and dedication and thriftiness.

      “Wisdom is the ability to discern. It is our perspective on life – our balance, our harmony. Wisdom is our understanding of how life works and our sense of humor when it doesn’t. Wisdom is playful and caring. Wisdom ushers in good judgment, calms agitation… ” “And if it is harnessed, wisdom just might restore humanity to the pathway toward successful civilization.”

      Thanks and regards,

    Respected sir,

    I love this very inspiring quote which matches with the other quote of swami ji : Arise,Awake,Stop not till the goal is reached.

    Moreover I am proud of our Vivekananda swami ji who moves the people of the world with his inspiring speeches which always points us to see within especially for Indians to pursue our life in pursuit of excellence.

    Moreover this inspiring quote in your blog has given me a wisdom which I have saved in my desktop to revisit it daily for treading our journey and realize our potentials.Please keep giving us motivational quotes to make our life sublime and meaningful.

    With deep Regards,

    Yours remain faithfully student ,

    Respected Sir,

    Thanks for a beautiful post.

    Stand up, be bold, be strong. Take the whole responsibility on your own shoulders, and know that you are the creator of your own destiny. All the strength and succor you want is within yourself. Therefore make your own future- Swami Vivekananda.

    I am follower of swami and swami’s life inspires me. Swami said When a person has a knowledge, strength and power it makes a person more humble and kind.

    We should believe in our-self to generate true inner power to overcome all the difficulty.




  8. Always enjoy your weekly inspiration posts Dilip. Thank you! Margie
