1.When Swami Vivekananda went to USA, a lady asked him to marry her. When Swami asked the lady about what made her ask him such question. The lady replied that she was fascinated by his intellect. She wanted a child of such an intellect. So she asked Swami, whether he could marry her and give a child like him.

He said to that lady, that since she was attracted only by his intellect, there is no problem. “My dear lady, I understand Your desire. Marrying and bringing a child in to this world and understanding whether it is intelligent or not takes very long time. More over it is not guaranteed. Instead, to ful fill Your desire immediately, I can suggest a guaranteed way. Take me as Your child. You are my mother. Now on Your desire of having a child of my intellect is fulfilled.”

The lady was speechless.

2.A reply made by George Bernard Shaw in similar occasion is as follows.

Shaw was approached by a beautiful lady( film star) to marry her.Shaw asked why?

She said”I am beautiful and you are intelligent. If we get a child, the child will be of your intelligence and my beauty.

Shaw replied “If it is just opposite, my beauty and your intelligence? ”

3.Guruji (Sri Sri Ravishankar) was asked by a lady in US “Swamiji, can you sleep with me ?”

Swamiji was prompt in his reply” I have not come here to sleep, I have come to wake you up”
