Three passions have governed my life:
The longings for love, the search for knowledge,
And unbearable pity for the suffering of [humankind].
Love brings ecstasy and relieves loneliness.
In the union of love I have seen
In a mystic miniature the prefiguring vision
Of the heavens that saints and poets have imagined.
With equal passion I have sought knowledge.
I have wished to understand the hearts of [people].
I have wished to know why the stars shine.
Love and knowledge led upwards to the heavens,
But always pity brought me back to earth;
Cries of pain reverberated in my heart
Of children in famine, of victims tortured
And of old people left helpless.
I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot,
And I too suffer.
This has been my life; I found it worth living.
Boys are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. The girls don't want to reach for the good ones because they're afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead they just get the rotten apples that are on the ground, that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think that there is something wrong with them, when in reality, they are amazing. That is why you just have to be a little patient and the right girl, the one who takes a chance to find the good, right apple, will come someday...
We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over."
I may not have a perfect personality, but Im ME
I may not be the most intelligent, but Im ME
I may not meet every challenge that comes along, but Im ME
I may not be in, but Im ME
ME is sensitive,
ME is kind,
ME is friendly, and
ME is caring,
ME is defensive,
and ME is self-righteous.
ME like who ME is for the personality, not for the physique.
ME like who ME is for trying not for always succeeding,
ME like who ME is for not trying to be perfect,
ME like who ME is for choosing true friends.
ME may make mistakes, and
ME may love you very much,
BUT ME cant change for you, only for ME
So please accept ME as ME!!!!
Are we friends* *or are we not?* *You told me once* *But I forgot* *Tell me now* *and tell me true* *so I can say* *I'm here for you* *Of all the friends I've ever met* *Your the one I won't forget* *And if I die* *before you do* *I'll go to heaven* *And wait for you* *I'll give the angels* * back their wings* *And risk the loss* *Of everything* *Just to prove* *My friendship is true* *To have a friend just like you!
A long time ago, before the world was created and humans set foot on it, God had put all the human "qualities" in a separate room.
Since all the qualities were bored they decided to play hide & seek. "Madness" was one of the qualities and he shouted: "I want to count, I want to count!"
And since nobody was crazy enough to want to seek "Madness", all the other qualities agreed.So "Madness" leaned against a tree and started to count: "One, two,three..." As "Madness" counted, the qualities went hiding. "Treason" hid in a pile of garbage.." Lie " said that it would hide under a stone, but hid at the bottom of the lake. And Madness continued to count "... seventy nine, eighty, eighty one..."
By this time, all the qualities were already hidden -except "Love ".For stupid as "Love " is, he could not decide where to hide. And this should not surprise us, because we all know how difficult it is to hide "Love".
"Madness": "...ninety five, ninety six, ninety seven..." Just when "Madness" got to one hundred........."Love" jumped into a rose bush where he hid. And Madness turned around and shouted: "I'm coming, I'm coming!"
As Madness turned around, "Laziness" was the first to be found, because "Laziness" was too lazy to hide. "Madness " searched madly and found "Lie" at the bottom of the lake. One by one, Madness found them all -
except Love. Madness was getting desperate, unable to find Love. Envious of Love, "Envy" whispered to "Madness ": "You only need to find Love, and Love is hiding in the rose bush." "Madness" Jumped on the rose bush and he heard loud cry . The thorns in the bush had pierced "Loves" eyes. Hearing the commotion God came into the room and saw what had happened. He got v...
Your crazy Smile.......
Is enough to make me realise that my tired day with the housework, cooking, laundry and running after the children was not worth it....
Is enough to make me proceed with my decision no matter what you/others may say
Is enough to make me pursue my dreams even if you/others think they are silly or impossible
Is enough to make me cry with pain
Is enough to make me feel confident to warrant such command
Your wicked Laughter.......
Is enough to increase my anger and frustrations
Your deadly Silence.......
Is enough to make me feel your senseless presence in my surrounding
Your nasty Look in my direction.......
Is enough to make me feel frightened and intimidated
Your emotionless Hug.......
Is enough to keep me even colder in the coldest of weathers
Is enough to make me feel scared
Your poking Touch.............
Is enough to make me feel that I am the most in-attractive woman
Your non-Devotion to Allah........
Is enough to make me feel grateful and blessed
That He has decreed you to be my husband, my leader, my provider, my shield, cos i have been through hell on earth for which i will be rewarded heaven for my tolerance, patient, calmness and thankfulness.
(In any case if it is decreed that i should remain married with this person for ever, i am still grateful to Allah, the Exalted, for my existence and for guiding me to Islam....Subhanal-llah, Walhamdu-lillah, Wala-ilaha-illal-lah, Wallahu-Akbar. La Haola Wala Quwata Illa Billah)
