INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES

"You are the Children of God, the sharers of immortal bliss, holy and perfect beings.  Ye divinities on earth - sinners? It is a sin to call a man so; it is a standing libel on human nature.  Come up, O lions, and shake off the delusion that you are sheep; you are souls immoral, spirits free, blessed and eternal; ye are not matter, ye are not bodies; matter is your servant, not you are the servant of matter."
                                 -Swami Vivekananda.
