Selected Quotations from The Mother and Sri Aurobindo found in Prof. Surya's papers

Do not allow any discouragement to come upon you and have no distrust of the Divine Grace. Whatever difficulties are outside you, whatever weaknesses are inside you, if you keep firm hold on your faith and your aspiration, the secret Power will carry you through...Even if you are oppressed with Opposition and difficulties, even if you stumble, even if the way seems closed to you, keep hold on your aspiration; if faith is clouded for a time, turn always in mind and heart to us and it will be removed.
The ego thinks of what it wants and has not, that is its constant preoccupation. The soul is aware of what it is receiving, and lives in endless gratitude 
 What is necessary in the begining is to remember the Mother as much as possible, to concentrate on her in the heart for a time every day, if possible thinking of her as the Divine Mother, to aspire to feel her there within you, offer her your works and pray that from within she may guide and sustain you.
Sri Aurobindo 
We know the Divine and become the Divine, because we are That already in our secret nature

Sri Aurobindo
 The Synthesis of Yoga
At every moment may our attitude be such that Thy divine Will may determine our. choice and that thus it may be Thou who directest our entire life.
The Mother
Peace in the storm, Calm in the effort, Joy in the surrender, a luminous Faith, and you will become aware of the Lord's constant Presence.
The Mother
The Divine Presence is in you. It is in you... look inside. It is in you.
The Mother
Whatever comes to you, if you take it in the right spirit., will turn for the best. 
 The Mother
As we progress and purify ourselves of our egoism, our friendship with the Divine becomes more and more clear and conscious. 
 The Mother
Lord, With all the simple sincerity of my being I offer all falsehoods at Thy feet, that Thou mayest transform them into Truth. 
The Mother
This yoga demands a total dedication of the life to the aspiration for the discovery and embodiment of the Divine Truth and to nothing else whatever. To divide your life between the Divine and some outward aim and activity that has nothing to do with the search for the Truth is inadmissible. The least thing of that kind would make success in the yoga impossible. 
Sri Aurobindo
