Born Narendra Nath Datta in an affluent family and raised in Kolkata, Swami Vivekananda’s life and teachings have always been an inspiration to youth all over the world. Vivekananda was not just an intellectual genius but a spiritual visionary, who taught us how to realise the universal consciousness beyond the limitations of time and space within our own minds and hearts.
Here are 15 quotes by Swami Vivekananda that will inspire you for life:
1. Who is Helping You, Don’t Forget them. Who is Loving you, Don’t Hate them. Who is Believing you, Don’t Cheat them.

Swami Vivekananda’s historic speech at the first Parliament of the World’s Religions in Chicago on September 11, 1893 is considered among his most significant contributions to the world. The opening lines of his speech – “Sisters and brothers of America” – earned him a two-minute standing ovation from the audience.
