Rousing call by Swami Vivekananda to Sisters and Brothers of India:
“I simply want to be like the squirrel in the building of Râma's bridge, who was quite content to put on the bridge his little quota of sand-dust. That is my position”.
Swami Vivekananda at Shakespeare Club, Pasadena, California, 31 January 1900
