Vivekananda’s quote on sectarianism

“Sectarianism, bigotry, and its horrible, descendant, fanaticism, have long possessed this beautiful earth. They have filled the earth with violence, drenched it often with human blood, destroyed civilization, and sent whole nations to despair. Had it not been for these horrible demons, human society would be far more advanced than it is now.”

-From Swami Vivekanda’s speech, at the World Parliament of Religions, Chicago, 1893
