Do for this life as if you live forever, do for the afterlife as if you die tomorrow.
Ali Ibn Abi Talib
A man's measure is his will.
A poor man is like a foreigner in his own country.
A brother is like gold and a friend is like diamond. If gold cracks you can melt it and make it just like it was before. If a diamond cracks, it can never be like it was before.
Do not be too hard, lest you be broken; do not be too soft, lest you be squeezed.
