The great are really great, in spite of any temporary smallness.

  

Hinduism is great. Their greatness and highest hopes for future greatness arise, from their being the children of the Great Rishis and Sages and Saints and Devotees. As far as my personal belief goes, Hindus are the most pet children of Mother. The great are really great, in spite of any temporary smallness. A banyan tree seed, though lying mixed up with mud in a drain, is by itself greater than the seeds of so many small shrubs. When I have that picture before me, not of the actualities but of the potentialities and possibilities of Hindu future greatness, I am actually lost in joyful wonder. The eminence which once Hindus, enjoyed, India is sure to re-rise to. No paradise lost ever remained without having been regained.
