Is it not enough to know the evil to shun it? If not, we should be sincere enough to admit that we love evil too well to give it up.
When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-Gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day
Man's nature is not essentially evil. Brute nature has been known to yield to the influence of love. You must never despair of human nature.
I believe in the fundamental truth of all great religions of the world.
