” It sometimes happens
… that an enlightened sage …
Is not successful in his plans.

Sometimes it happens that an
… ignorant child …
By mistake hits the target
… with his arrow. ”

” The company of the good …
… will make you good.
The company of the bad
… will make you bad.

Those who are the same nature
… fly off together.
Eagles soar eagles, … pigeons
… flutter with pigeons.”

– Mevlana RUMI

“Declare your jihad on thirteen enemies you cannot see –
Egoism, Arrogance, Conceit, Selfishness, Greed, Lust,
Intolerance, Anger, Lying, Cheating, Gossiping and Slandering.
If you can master and destroy them,
then will be ready to fight the enemy you can see.”

~ Al-Ghazali

Who all things

… alone we live.

May there still shine …
The torch
of hope …
… that Thou …

… to us didst give! ”
