Below are some of the beautiful lines by the spiritual genius, Swami Vivekanand. A devotee of mankind, he always strove to promote peace and brotherhood amongst the society. I have collection of some of his books, which I think is of a worth read. All of his works are completely profound and compels an individual to think at a very different level (leaving behind the routine in-the-box thinking). 😉 After all, its a great mind behind the great thoughts! Salute to The Genius! 🙂
When I Asked God for Strength,
He Gave Me Difficult Situations to Face.
When I Asked God for Brain & Brawn,
He Gave Me Puzzles in Life to Solve.
When I Asked God for Happiness,
He Showed Me Some Unhappy People.
When I Asked God for Wealth,
He Showed Me How to Work Hard.
When I Asked God for Favors,
He Showed Me Opportunities to Work Hard.
When I Asked God for Peace,
He Showed Me How to Help Others.
God Gave Me Nothing I Wanted,
He Gave Me Everything I Needed.
