Religious Thought 192

No worldly delight is comparable to the delight that will fill your heart when you completely abandon all hopes and desires.
- Maharamayana

Live in joy, In love, Even among those who hate. Live in joy, In health, Even among the afflicted. Live in joy, In peace, Even among the troubled. Look within. Be still. Free from fear and attachment, Know the sweet joy of the way.
- from the Dhammapada

Children of Adam! Distribute your surplus wealth in the name of Allah; it will earn you more merit. Do not hold it back. You must not be remembered for miserliness, so begin with those closest to you.
- Hadith The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reported by Abu Umamah

When you are arguing against Him, you are arguing against the very power that makes you able to argue at all.
- C.S. Lewis

The longing makes the Messiah.
- Theodor Herzl, "Altneuland"
