We have been preparing a series of articles on Swami Vivekananda's motivational quotes. In this article you'll find a collection of Swami Vivekananda's quotations where he asked to "work on".
  • Arise, ye mighty one, and be strong! Work on and on, struggle on and on![Source]
  • Charity opens the heart, but work on through that wedge.[Source]
  • Even if you are at your last breath, be not afraid. Work on with the intrepidity of a lion but, at the same time with the tenderness of a flower.[Source]
  • . . . I like to work on calmly and silently, and the Lord is always with me. Follow me, if you will, by being intensely sincere, perfectly unselfish, and, above all, by being perfectly pure. My blessings go with you.[Source]
  • Let us all work on our own plans.[Source]
  • Let us work on, doing as we go whatever happens to be our duty, and being ever ready to put our shoulders to the wheel. Then surely shall we see the Light![Source]
  • Push on in your work, without counting much on me; work on your own account. . . .[Source]
  • Take courage and work on. Patience and steady work — this is the only way. Go on; remember — patience and purity and courage and steady work. . . . So long as you are pure, and true to your principles, you will never fail — Mother will never leave you, and all blessings will be yours.[Source]
  • This world is not for cowards. Do not try to fly. Look not for success or failure. Join yourself to the perfectly unselfish will and work on.[Source]
  • What is your motive? Are you sure that you are not actuated by greed of gold, by thirst for fame or power? Are you really sure that you can stand to your ideals and work on, even if the whole world wants to crush you down? Are you sure you know what you want and will perform your duty, and that alone, even if your life is at stake? Are you sure that you will persevere so long as life endures, so long as there is one pulsation left in the heart? Then you are a real reformer, you are a teacher, a Master, a blessing to mankind.[Source]
  • Work on, be lions; and the Lord will bless you. I shall work incessantly until I die, and even after death I shall work for the good of the world.
  • Work on, my boy. Rome was not built in a day. I am guided by the Lord, so everything will come all right in the end.[Source]
  • Work on, my brave boys.[Source]
  • Work on with a heart.[Source]
  • Work on with a will and be ready.[Source]
  • Work on with energy. India is a rotten corpse inside and outside. We shall revive it by the blessings of Shri Maharaj.[Source]
  • Work on with greater energy.[Source]
  • You may work on, and on, and on; there will be no end to this inevitable association of good and evil in the results of work.[Source]
