In Egypt, waist beads were…

Forgive immediately and focus on the future rather than carrying weight from the past. Don’t let your history hold you hostage. Holding onto past mistakes that either you or she makes, is like a heavy anchor to your marriage and will hold you back. Forgiveness is freedom. Cut the anchor loose and always choose love.
There are still some wonderful people left in this world. They are diamonds in the rough, but they’re around. You’ll find them when you fall down, they’re the ones who pick you up, who don’t judge, and you had to fall down to see them. When you get up again, remember who your true friends are.

“For me, a woman who is absorbed in her work, who does not care about gaining one’s favour, strong yet subtle at the same time, is essentially more seductive. The more she hides and abandons her femininity, the more it emerges from the very heart of her existence.”

x Kendrick Lamar  : Faith 

Close some doors. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they no longer lead somewhere.
Nothing proves that you love someone more, than mentioning them in your prayers.
A person who thinks all the time has nothing to think about except thoughts. So he loses touch with reality, and lives in a world of illusion.
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
Don’t let anyone pressure you into letting them back into your space. Your space, your terms. If you’re not ready, you’re not ready and that’s OK. Readiness comes with time and faith. You’ll get there.

The most expensive thing to buy is a place in this world, it comes with the price of a soul.

Awareness cannot be all that we bring to a situation.

“I think computer viruses should count as life … I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We’ve created life in our own image.” 

“One is always a long way from solving a problem until one actually has the answer.”

Indeed, everywhere that science and education have advanced, so religion has dwindled in influence.
