Life and Character. . .

నా నరనరాల్లో ప్రవహించే రక్తం శాస్త్ర సమ్మతము, వేదసారము. (The Great Saint, Swamy Sundara Chaithanyananda)
Have that kind of determination towards the goal. Attain that kind of will power. Until an unless you make your ideals as your life and character you merely achieved nothing.
In Vivekananda's words,
"Education is not the amount of information that we put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested, all your life. We must have life building, man making, character making assimilation of ideas. If you have assimilated five ideas and made them your life and character, you have more education than any man who has got by heart a whole library..."
Faith in one's self
According to Swami Vivekananda "faith, faith, faith in ourselves, faith, faith in God- this is the secret of greatness. Swami Vivekananda observed the history of the world is the history of a few men who had faith in themselves, and he it is faith which calls out divinity within. So he told, if people have faith in three hundred and thirty millions of Hindu mythological gods, and in all the gods which foreigners have now and still have no faith in themselves, there will be no salvation.
