  • Weekly Quote – #13 - "And know that the heart in an organ from the organs. It is able to bear somethings and unable to bear others, just like the rest of the body. Thus, some people are able to carry one-hundred pounds, whereas others are unable to carry even twenty. Some people are able to walk a number of miles in a day without tiring, whereas others are unable to even walk a mile a day before they become tired… So let each person limit himself to what he is able without expending all his energies, because that will better aid him in learning with a good mind, from a firm and proficient teacher.”
  • Weekly Quote – #12 – Friendship - Friendship is like a book. It takes ages to write but it needs only seconds to burn! We seem to neglect the importance of a real friend in this life though he is a rare commodity.
  • Weekly Quotes – #11 – Children - "A man's rank in paradise will be elevated, so he will ask, "How did I achieve this?" It will be said to him. "As a result of your child seeking forgiveness for you".

  • Weekly Quote – #8 - "The word 'regret' should not be in our vocab... What is past already past, it could not be mend! Just think of the future and the next thing to do... Life has to go on, we should think how to support the present"
  • Weekly Quote – #7 - "There is no success without taking a risk!"
  • Weekly Quote – #6 - it everywhere I went. It was me. All it takes is for us to believe that we can do it!"
