Viveka-1 from Vivekananda

"In my first speech in this country, in Chicago, I addressed that audience as ‘Sisters and Brothers of America’, and you know that they all rose to their feet. You may wonder what made them do this, you may wonder if I had some strange power.
Let me tell you that I did have a power and this is it — never once in my life did I allow myself to have even one sexual thought. I trained my mind, my thinking, and the powers that man usually uses along that line – I put into a higher channel, and it developed a force so strong that nothing could resist it."
- Swami Vivekananda in a conversation with Mrs. George Roorbach: Complete Works – Volume 9
