I don't know whether Ramakrishna were a master, but still sharing something he said:
Quote:
A king having committed the mortal crime of killing a Brâhmana, went to the hermitage of a sage to learn what penance he must perform in order to be purified. The sage was absent from home, but his son was there. The son hearing the case of the king, said, 'Repeat the name of God (Râma) three times and your sin will be expiated.' When the sage came back and heard the penance prescribed by his son, he said to him in great wrath, 'Sins committed in myriads of births are purged at once by but once uttering the name of the Almighty; how weak must be thy faith, O son, that thou hast ordered that name to be repeated thrice! For this offence of thine go and become a Kândâla.' And the son became the Guhaka Kândâla of the Râmâyana.

Yes, Ramakrishna was a master extraordinaire!

When asked, How will we know when we are getting closer to God?
Paramahansa Yogananda answered with no hesitation, "When you feel."

Life Is –

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.

by Mother Teresa

“Spirituality is not about giving you a better script. In its deepest sense, spirituality marches you to the cliff of the egoic mind and then it jumps off. What it is really interested in is what life is like without a narrative.” - Adyashanti

“We can't actually experience reality as long as we're endlessly talking to ourselves about it.” - Adyashanti

I just read this one, I think it's great. The best way to find out if you're on the right path is to stop looking at the path.
