‘Awake’, ‘Arise’ and ‘not stopping’ all guides us towards a well determined vision. It is not about staying awake at night, it is about the awakening of your inner self! I am yet to understand the meaning of that, but I am sure that it is not what is said in the comic strip. 😛
I wonder how the terrorists are inspired. As they are asked to give up books for weapons, they must not be knowing this quote(or any for that matter). Still they are more inspired than the well educated, self motivated learned scholars all over the world. I don’t know, may be quotes are not the best source of inspiration. May be the incidents in our life are the best source of inspiration, or even for some, it is religion, or ego or whatever that is hurt!
Or may be it is easy to inspire others to do wrong things, because they are more inclined to commit sins. Definition of Sin is another thing to debate as everything is created by Man according to his convenience. So whatever it is, it is difficult to inspire someone to do the right thing!
This quote inspires me to work for my goals. And I am happy that Swami Vivekananda wrote it as he did this in his life. Whatever he did, or spoke about inspires me. It is said that ‘The less people speak of their greatness, the more we think’. Same is this case.
So arise, awake and stop not till you find your source of inspiration! 😛 After that you can follow this quote!
