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

On healing


Be a lamp,

a lifeboat,

a ladder.

Help someone’s soul heal.

Walk out of your house like a shepherd.

~ Rumi

It’s okay

“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

Fighting monsters

Be careful when fighting monsters – lest you become one of them.

Drown in the sea

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.

~ Rūmī

Finite and infinite

Man is finite, but love is infinite; and finite has no control over the infinite.

~ Abul Hassan Ali Hujwiri

The rest is clay.

You don’t have a soul.

You are a soul.

You have a body.

~ C.S. Lewis
