Look at people who discovered a cause that they gave their lives over to, people such as Benjamin Franklin, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Albert Einstein and Nelson Mandela. They connected with some kind of a crusade that they decided their lives would represent. This engaged their hearts. This made them emotionally charged up about what they were doing. And once we can develop some emotional engagement around a pursuit, rather than simply an intellectual engagement, the excitement flows and the energy explodes.

NUGGETS OF WISDOM “We have to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who really love us, the people who really matter.

Greatness in our materialistic world is defined as fame, popularity, scholastic or economic achievement, and notoriety.

Gaurav Singh: Most vegetarians are people who have understood that to contribute towards a more peaceful society we must first solve the problem of violence in our own hearts.
