Asalamualaikum

MashAllah I absolutely love the random quotes as you probably already know!

Martin Luther King Jr and Abraham Lincoln have really good quotes.

If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. Their have been anti-Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that? - David Ben Gurion, first prime minister of Zionist entity.

"Do not speak much without mentioning Allah because you will harden your hearts. A hard heart is far from Allah, but you do not know. Do not look at the wrong actions of people as if you were lords. Look to your wrong actions as if you were slaves. Some people are afflicted by wrong action and some people are protected from it. Be merciful to the people of affliction and praise Allah for His protection." - Jesus (Peace be upon him)

You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.

   Brian Tracy quote

Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions.

   Harold S. Geneen quote

My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.

   Michael Jordan quote

In every block of marble I see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it.

   Michelangelo quote

  A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

   Anonymous quotes

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

   Lao Tzu quote

It often requires more courage to dare to do right than to fear to do wrong.

   Abraham Lincoln quote

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.

   Ambrose Redmoon quote

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

   Winston Churchill quote

Is he alone who has courage on his right hand and faith on his left hand?

   Charles Lindbergh quote

Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.

   John Fitzgerald Kennedy quote

What this country needs is more people to inspire others with confidence, and fewer people to discourage any initiative in the right direction; more to get into the thick of things, fewer to sit on the sidelines, merely finding fault; more to point out what's right with the world, and fewer to keep harping on what's wrong with it; and more who are interested in lighting candles, and fewer who blow them out.

   Anonymous quote

Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.

   Abraham Lincoln quote

Long engagements give people the opportunity of finding out each other's character before marriage, which is never advisable.

   Oscar Wilde quote

It is possible that the scrupulously honest man may not grow rich so fast as the unscrupulous and dishonest one; but the success will be of a truer kind, earned without fraud or injustice. And even though a man should for a time be unsuccessful, still he must be honest: better lose all and save character. For character is itself a fortune...

      “This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.”

      “true friendship isn't about being there when it's convenient; it's about being there when it's not.”

      “Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.”
 Gloria Naylor quote
 
      “They keep saying the right person will come along, I think mine got hit by a truck.”

If you want riches [but have no wealth], if you want strength [but have no clan], then move from the humiliation of wrong actions towards the dignity of obedience

We can come to look upon the deaths of our enemies with as much regret as we feel for those of our friends, namely, when we miss their existence as witnesses to our success.
*Schopenhauer


no one is free while others are oppressed


Pretty is something you're born with. But beautiful, that's an equal opportunity adjective.


These are all the best. But this? It's not the best...it's EXCELLENT!


immature love wanting the other person to be happy only when they are with you, mature love is wanting the other person to be happy period.-(van)-(reba show)


Women wish to be loved not because they are pretty, or good, or well bred, or graceful, or intelligent, but because they are themselves.

~Henri Frederic Amiel


'Life is not a problem to be solved, rather a mystery to be Loved.'
Osho


Lester Burnham in the film American Beauty:

"I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me. But it's hard to stay mad when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once... and it's too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst. And then I remember... to relax, and not try to hold on to it. And then it flows through me like rain. And I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life. You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. Don't worry... you will someday."


You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.”
- Mother Theresa


The better part of one's life consists of his friendships.
- Abraham Lincoln


Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody's going to know whether you did it or not.
-Oprah



True, we are often too weak to stop injustices; but the least we can do is to protest against them. True, we are too poor to eliminate hunger; but in feeding one child, we protest against hunger. True, we are too timid and powerless to take on all the guards of all the political prisons in the world; but in offering our solidarity to one prisoner we denounce all the tormentors. True, we are powerless against death; but as long as we help one man, one woman, one child live one hour longer in safety and dignity, we affirm man's right to live.
-Elie Wiesel
