Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
I’ve heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
– Emily Dickinson
Be a lamp,
Help someone’s soul heal.
Walk out of your house like a shepherd.
“It’s okay to feel sad, anxious, lonely, frustrated, and confused.
Feeling these emotions doesn’t make you less of a believer.
The difference between the believer and non-believer is that the believer remains patient and turns to Allah for help.”
– Wael Abdelgawad
Be careful when fighting monsters – lest you become one of them.
The intellectual is always showing off, the lover is always getting lost.
The intellectual runs away. afraid of drowning;
the whole business of love is to drown in the sea.
Man is finite, but love is infinite; and finite has no control over the infinite.
~ Abul Hassan Ali Hujwiri
