In this article we'll collect Swami Vivekananda's quotes on feeling.
  • All poetry, painting, and music is feeling expressed through words, through colour, through sound. . . .[Source]
  • Do you really feel for your brothers? Do you really feel that there is so much misery in the world, so much ignorance and superstition? Do you really feel that men are your brothers? Does this idea come into your whole being? Does it run with your blood? Does it tingle in your veins? Does it course through every nerve and filament of your body? Are you full of that idea of sympathy? If you are, that is only the first step. You must think next if you have found any remedy.[Source]
  • Feel like Christ and you will be a Christ; feel like Buddha and you will be a Buddha.[Source]
  • Feel, my children, feel; feel for the poor, the ignorant, the downtrodden; feel till the heart stops and the brain reels and you think you will go mad — then pour the soul out at the feet of the Lord, and then will come power, help, and indomitable energy.[Source]
  • Feeling is the soul, the secret of everything.[Source]
  • First it is feeling, then it becomes willing, and out of that willing comes the tremendous force for work that will go through every vein and nerve and muscle, until the whole mass of your body is changed into an instrument of the unselfish Yoga of work, and the desired result of perfect self-abnegation and utter unselfishness is duly attained.[Source]
  • It is feeling that is the life, the strength, the vitality, without which no amount of intellectual activity can reach God.[Source]
  • It is feeling that works, that moves with speed infinitely superior to that of electricity or anything else. Do you feel? — that is the question. If you do, you will see the Lord: It is the feeling that you have today that will be intensified, deified, raised to the highest platform, until it feels everything, the oneness in everything, till it feels God in itself and in others.[Source]
  • It is through the feelings that the highest secrets are reached.[Source]
  • The feeling and the distinction that I am an Aryan and the other is a Mlechchha come from ignorance.[Source]
  • The moment you expand and feel for others, you gain help.[Source]
  • Worship is feeling the holiness of God.[Source]
  • You must feel for the millions of beings around you, and yet you must be strong and inflexible and you must also possess Obedience; though it may seem a little paradoxical — you must possess these apparently conflicting virtues.[Source]
