You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
A spring of infinite power is coiled up and is inside this little body and that spring is spreading itself.
We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act.
Doing is very good, but that comes from thinking… fill the brain, therefore, with high thoughts, highest ideals; place them day and night before you; and out of that will come great work.
To succeed, you must have tremendous perseverance, tremendous will. “I will drink the ocean”, says the persevering soul; “at my will mountains will crumble up”.
The secret of life is not enjoyment, but education through experience.
