"One travels more usefully when alone, because he reflects more."Ramakrishna on Thomas Jefferson
"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not."Ramakrishna on Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Work, apart from devotion or love of God, is helpless and cannot stand alone."
"If you desire to be pure, have firm faith, and slowly go on with your devotional practices without wasting your energy in useless scriptural discussions and arguments. Your little brain will otherwise be muddled."
"To work without attachment is to work without the expectation of reward or fear of any punishment in this world or the next. Work so done is a means to the end, and God is the end."
"Bondage is of the mind freedom too is of the mind. If you say 'I am a free soul. I am a son of God who can bind me' free you shall be."
