Silence is a true friend who never betrays.
The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach - waiting for a gift from the sea.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.
Loving oneself isn't hard, when you understand who and what 'yourself' is. It has nothing to do with the shape of your face, the size of your eyes, the length of your hair or the quality of your clothes. It's so beyond all of those things and it's what gives life to everything about you. Your own self is such a treasure.
War does not determine who is right - only who is left.

I got to grow up with a mother who taught me to believe in me.
The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing... not healing, not curing... that is a friend who cares.
Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.
How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being.
Allah says in the Qur'an not to despise one another. So the criterion in Islam is not color or social status. It's who is most righteous.

T. S. Eliot
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
