What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
Henry Haskins, Meditations in Wall Street (1940). Often misattributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson, Oliver Wendell Holmes, or Henry David Thoreau.
All search is vain, until we begin to perceive that wisdom is within ourselves … then we may know the sun is rising, that the morning is breaking for us.
Swami Vivekananda (1863 – 1902), spiritual leader of Hinduism.
