The world is but ruin; more ruined is the heart of he who works for it. The Hereafter is flourishing; more flourishing is the heart of he who works for it.
Were this world to be sold on the market, I would not buy it for a loaf of bread, for all the troubles it contains.
We patch up our world by tearing our religion into pieces. So that neither our religion remains, nor what we are patching.
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. If you are successful you will win some false friends and true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway.
This world is nothing but temporary convenience, and the greatest joy in this world is a righteous woman.
When love of this world enters the heart, fear of the Hereafter exits from it. Beware of worldy distractions, for no servant opens a door of this world without several doors of works for the Hereafter being shut for him.
You never extend your hand to something of this world without finding that a depraved man has overtaken you to it.
