Swami Vivekananda on Language
Language is the vehicle of ideas. It is the ideas that are of prime importance, language comes after.Human language is the attempt to express the truth that is within.
Language is the chief means and index of a nation’s progress.
What we need, you know, is to study, independent of foreign control, different branches of the knowledge that is our own, and with it the English language and Western science; we need technical education and all else that may develop industries so that men, instead of seeking for service, may earn enough to provide for themselves, and save something against a rainy day.
My success is due to my popular style – the greatness of a teacher consists in the simplicity of his language.
Simplicity is the secret. My ideal of language is my Master’s language, most colloquial and yet most expressive. It must express the thought which is intended to be conveyed
