ममेयं मनीषा यत् आदौ अस्माकं ग्रन्थेषु निहितानि आध्यात्मिकरत्नानि प्रकाशं नेयानि… इमानि सर्वेषां सम्पदः स्युः…! अत्र विघ्नायते संस्कृतभाषा इयम् अस्मदीया ऐश्वर्यमयी वाणी। एषा अर्गला तावन्न शक्यवारणा यावन्न राष्ट्रं संस्कृतपण्डितैः पूर्णम्।अतः जनभाषया तत्त्वं बोधनीयम्, तेन सह संस्कृतभाषा अपि अवश्यं शिक्षणीया, यतो हि संस्कृतशब्दानां ध्वनिमात्रमपि जनेषु आदधाति गौरवं, बलं, तेजश्च।”(CW, 3.289-90)

“My idea is first of all to bring out the gems of spirituality [& culture] that are stored up in our books [Sanskrit scriptures]…I want to make them popular. I want to bring out these ideas and let them be the common property of all, of every man in India, whether he knows the Sanskrit language or not.”

“The great difficulty in the way is the Sanskrit language — the glorious language of ours; Therefore the ideas must be taught in the language of the people; at the same time, Sanskrit education must go on along with it, because the very sound of Sanskrit words gives a prestige and a power and a strength to the race.”

“The ancient classical creations of the Sanskrit tongue, both in quality and body and abundance of excellence, in their potent originality and force and beauty, in their substance and art and structure, in grandeur and justice and charm of speech, and in the height and width of thr reach of their spirit stand very evidently in the front rank among the world’s great literatures. The language itself, as has been universally recognised by those competent to form a judgement, is one of the most magnificent, the most perfect and wonderfully sufficient literary instruments developed by the human mind; at once majestic and sweet and flexible, strong and clearly formed and full and vibrant and subtle.” — Sri Aurobindo

“The Sanskrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure; more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin, and more exquisitely refined than either, yet bearing to both of them a stronger affinity, both in the roots of verbs and the forms of grammar, than could possibly have been produced by accident; so strong indeed, that no philologer could examine them all three, without believing them to have sprung from some common source, which, perhaps, no longer exists; there is a similar reason, though not quite so forcible, for supposing that both the Gothic and the Celtic, though blended with a very different idiom, had the same origin with the Sanskrit; and the old Persian might be added to the same family.” –William Jones (1746-1794) Philologist
