11th January in Swami Vivekananda Life

11 January :
 
11 Jan 1895 : Swamiji writes To G.G. Narasimhachariar from Chicago : ...the Hindus must back their talk with real work; if they cannot they do not deserve anything; that is all....Work on, be lions; and the Lord will bless you. I shall work incessantly until I die, and even after death I shall work for the good of the world. Truth is infinitely more weighty than untruth; so is goodness. If you possess these, they will make their way by sheer gravity. ...It is the force of character, of purity, and of truth — of personality. So long as I have these things, you can feel easy; no one will be able to injure a hair of my head. If they try, they will fail, saith the Lord. . . . Enough of books and theories. It is the life that is the highest and the only way to stir the hearts of people; it carries the personal magnetism. . . . The Lord is giving me a deeper and deeper insight every day. Work, work, work. . . . Truce to foolish talk; talk of the Lord. Life is too short to be spent in talking about frauds and cranks. You must always remember that every nation must save itself; so must every man; do not look to others for help. ....
