Assalamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakatuh.

Another good reflective thought:

Umar ibn Abdul Azeez (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

إِنِ اسْتَطَعْتَ فَكُنْ عَالِماً

Become a scholar if you are able.

فَإِنْ لَمْ تَسْتَطِعْ فَكُنْ مُتَعَلِّماً

If you are not able, then be a student.

وَإِنْ لَمْ تَسْتَطِعْ فَأَحَبَّهُمْ

If you can not, then show love for them.

وَإِنْ لَمْ تَسْتَطِعْ فَلا َتَبْغَضُهُمْ.

If you are unable to do that, then (at least) do not hate them.
