Man is the maker of his fortune and cause of his misfortunes. No divine power does any good or evil to human life. Man himself is responsible for the successes and failures, sweets and bitters of his life. Reason and intelligence leads one to light and ignorance to darkness.
~ Veer Savarkar, in Vinayak Damodar Savarkar’s ‘Strategic Agnosticism’: A Compilation of his Socio-Political Philosophy and Worldview by Siegfried O. Wolf. [Download Working paper – PDF]
