A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on action and force of energy

No action is ever an isolated event. Always, it invites from the universe a reaction that corresponds exactly to the type and the force of energy behind the deed.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda

Those who are unconquered in spirit are the real successes in life. If you can so train or condition your mind that you are content regardless of what you have or do not have, and if you can stand the challenge of all your trials and remain calm-that is true happiness.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on god, love, and friendship

The sun shines equally on diamond and charcoal, but the former has developed qualities that enable it to reflect the sunlight brilliantly, while the latter is unable to reflect the sunlight.  Emulate the diamond in your dealings with people.  Brightly reflect the light of God's love.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on divine, friendship, love, god, and sarcasm

Making others happy, through kindness of speech and sincerity of right advice, is a sign of true greatness.  To hurt another soul by sarcastic words, looks, or suggestions, is despicable.  Sarcasm draws out the rebellious spirit and anger in the wrongdoer.  Loving suggestions bring out the repentence in him.  Repentence consists in thoroughly understanding one's own error and in abandoning it.  Friendship is pure by nature.  When you have a lilly in your hands, how can you crush it?  When you love a person dearly, how can you hurt him, even though he may be wrong?  Divine love is unlimited and infinite.  When two or more persons are friends always, no matter what happens, that is an expression of divine love, of divine friendship.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on creation and thought

Since you alone are responsible for your thoughts,
only you can change them.
You will want to change them
when you realize that each thought creates
according to its own nature.
Remember that the law works at all times
and that you are always demonstrating
according to the kind of thoughts you habitually entertain.
Therefore, start now to think only those thoughts
that will bring you health and happiness.
