To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him. -Buddha
Common sense ain't so common...

Quotes by Sayidina Ali (RA)

Do for this life as if you live forever, do for the afterlife as if you die tomorrow.

He who busies himself with things other than improvement of his own self becomes perplexed in darkness and entangled in ruin. His evil spirits immerse him deep in vices and make his bad actions seem handsome.

Resignation to the Will of God is the cure for the disease of the heart.

Opportunity is swift of flight, but slow to return.

He who indulges in jokes and loose talk loses a part of his wisdom.
The greater your capacity to love, the greater your capacity to feel the pain.
-Jennifer Aniston
You know it's love when all you want is that person to be happy,
even if you're not part of their happiness.
-Julia Roberts

You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.
-Barbara De Angelis

I miss...

the good ol' days
laughing til my stomach hurt
smiling just because
excitedly planning a new adventure
sharing poetry faves
intellectual conversation
anxiously waiting for the future
cooking for my loved ones
my friends
politickin' over coffee
getting lost in a book
sharing my thoughts
singing on top of my lungs
movie nights
talking into the wee hours of night
not giving a hoot
