Religion and Truth
God gives and forgives man gets and forgets.

There is nothing more certain than a thing that cannot be heard and there is
nothing more real than a thing that cannot be seen.

There are two ways of spreading light; To be a candle or mirror that reflects it.
(Muhammad peace be upon him was candle a Muslim must be a mirror of his life)

For all what I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all what I have not
seen.

For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth.

Whatever we are is God’s gift to us whatever we become is our gift to God.

God sometimes hides things by putting them near us.

Some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.

A brook would lose its song if God removed the rocks.

Trust in God, but tie your camel tight.

God gives every bird his worm, but he does not throw it into the nest.

A disbelief in God does not result in a belief in nothing; disbelief in God usually
results in a belief in anything.

Remember… when you are down to nothing, God is up to something.

Half-truth is a whole lie.

Absence of proof is not the proof of Absence.

… And may I never use reason against the truth.

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently
opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

Truth sits upon the lips of dying men.

Truth hurts – not searching after; the running from.

Truth may fall; but on a fertile soil.

Faith—is the Pier less Bridge Supporting what We see Unto the Scene that We
do not—.

Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, Faith looks up.

We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love
one another.

If triangles had a prophet, he would have three sides.

Faith - makes all things possible. Love - makes all things easy. Hope - makes
all things bright.

Patience with others is Love- Patience with self is Hope- Patience with God is
Faith

Justice is an unassailable fortress, built on the brow of a mountain which cannot be


overthrown by the violence of torrents, nor demolished by the force of armies.

Heart and Mind
Have a Heart that never hardens, and a Temper that never tires, and a Touch
that never hurts.

The Heart that Love is always young.

Heart knows things that the mind cannot understand; and feel things that eyes
cannot see.

If it take a lot of words to say what you have in mind, give it a more thought.

The heart has reasons that Reason understands not.

Hot heads and cold hearts never solved anything.

What comes from the heart, touches the heart.

Reason and Love are often sworn enemies.

Just pray for a tough hide and a tender heart.

The absence of alternative clears the mind marvelously.

Two souls with a single thought, two hearts but beat as one.

To love is to admire by heart; to admire is to love by mind.

To be absolutely certain about something, one must know everything, or nothing


about it.

Time
Time is the only critic without ambition.

Every beginning is an end and every end is a beginning.

The past is but a beginning of a beginning, and all that is and has been is but the
twilight of the dawn.

Count no day lost in which you waited for your turn, took only your share and
sought advantage over no one.

May you look back on past with as much pleasure as you look forward to future.

Do think before you waste your time that time will also waste you.

The only lesson that history has taught us is that man has not yet learned from
history.

You can't change the future without disturbing the present.

When Death to either shall come— I pray it be first to me.

History, although sometimes made up the few act of great, is more often shaped by
many acts of small.

Some people make headlines while other make History.

History must repeat its-self; we pay such a little attention to it the first time.

History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.

I recommend to you to take care of the minutes; for hours will take care of
themselves.

The flowers anew, returning seasons bring!

and he will become what he should be.

The man who knows it can’t be done counts the risk, not the reward.

Man is harder than iron, stronger than stone and more fragile than rose.

Women are made to be loved not to be understood.

Man loves little and often: Woman much and rarely.

A woman unsatisfied must have luxuries. But a woman who loves a man would
sleep on a board.

So long as man remains free, he strives for nothing so incessantly and so


painfully as to find someone to worship.

Alas! the love of women! It is known to be a lovely and fearful thing!

Man give love to get sex woman give sex to get love.

A man falls in love through his eyes, a woman through her ears.

No man was ever wise by chance.

No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river or he's not
the same man.

Show me the books he loves and I shall know the man far better than through
mortal friends.

Now hatred is by far the longest pleasure


Men love in haste, but detest at leisure

Man is the head of the family, woman the neck that turns the head.

How a man plays the game show something of his character; how he loses shows
all of it.

You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in year of
conversation.

The more things a man is ashamed of, the more respectable he is.

only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push

taught. It is good to get justice, but better to do it; fun to have things but more to
make them. The happy man is he who lives the life of love, not for the honors it
may bring, but for the life itself.

To every faithful lover, too,
I wish a trusting lady true

And friend from friend is snatched forlorn;

is also great
and would suffice.

has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
