It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there'll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.

In the midst of death life persists.

Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.

If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.

In fact, it is more correct to say that Truth is God, than to say that God is Truth.

The more I reflect and look back on the past, the more vividly do I feel my limitations.
