The only service to be done for our lower classes is to give education, to develop their lost individuality. ... Give them ideas - that is the only help they require, and then the rest must follow as the effect. Ours is to put the chemicals together, the crystallization comes in the law of nature. ... Now if the mountain does not come to Mohammed, Mohammed must go to mountain. If the poor boy cannot come to education, education must go to him.
- Swami Vivekananda
