Fancy quotes

If you avoid the conflict to keep the peace, you start a war inside yourself.

We mature with the damage, not with the years.

We carry inside us the wonders we seek outside us.

May your life be like a wildflower, growing freely in the beauty and joy of each day.

The only way to do great work is to love what you do.

I know you're hurting

i know the last few months have been hard, i know you're trying to hold on, i know you're telling yourself that it's going to be okay, although it feels like the exact opposite. i know it's been tough, i know that some nights you lie awake, unable to sleep, just thinking about why you couldn't be. i know your heart's hurting. i know that it's not been easy, and i just want you to know that even though it's bad today, tomorrow is another day. the sun will rise again and it will be okay. i know it's hard to believe, i know it's difficult being strong, but it'll be worth it in the end. you'll look back to the days when your life was falling apart, when you thought you couldn't go on and it will make you stronger. it does get better. so hold on. wait for the day when everything is okay - it's not far away.

Wise words on Life and our choices

Don't dwell on disappointment, reside in regrets or lull in loss. Focus on a fruitful future.

Gratitude is more of a compliment to yourself than someone else. 

You must make the choice to take the chance if you want things to change.

The power of stepping away.

You triumph when you say thank you to your experiences.

You don't meet people by accident. There's always a reason. A lesson, or a blessing.

You are your greatest lesson

You will learn - that not all doors you open are meant to stay open. That sometimes, time is someone you need to sit with. That places you land on are merely smaller hills leading you to bigger ones. That people do come and go. And that doesn't make it right or wrong, just that things are what they are moving forward. You will learn, that every broken piece or part of your soul can be mended. It can be stitched. It can grow and heal but never erased. Because they're living proof of what you've walked on in life. With time, you might even feel spending years wasting it and even then you will learn, that wasting those years was a lesson for you to spend it better. Believe me, you will learn all of this for yourself. From all the people and places and doors and mountains you've had to travel on. And you will learn it your own way. In your own light. In your own place of searching and finding and seeking. In time, you will learn for yourself, you are your greatest lesson because of the choices you made towards all that stands in front of you and behind you.

Fall in love without who will take care of you

Fall in love without who will take care of you - not in a materialistic way, but rather, fall in love with someone who will take care of your soul. Fall in love with someone who will take care of your mind, someone who will take care of your heart. Fall in love with someone who will take care of even the most chaotic parts of who you are.

Don't love hope

is looking for the exact same love
that you have to offer.
The exact some love that 
the one who hurt you did not appreciate.
Don't lose hope.
And don't settle.
The most beautiful love stories are those that
come after you realise what you deserve
and actually you finally get it.
You deserve someone who loves your
way of love.
Someone who loves you.

Quotes by Hamza Yusuf

"People say to you "you've changed" or something like that, well, I hope, for the sake of God that you have changed, because I don't want to be the same person all my life. I want to be growing, I want to be expanding. I want to be changing. Because animate things change, inanimate things don't change. Dead things don't change. And the heart should be alive, it should be changing, it should be moving, it should be growing, its knowledge should be expanding."

"Somewhere on earth there is a door reserved for each soul, and one day each one of us will walk through that door, never to return to this life again. Where that is and when we will walk through it are unknowns we must live with and prepare for. Upon death, all of this; this whole world and all of its charms and occupations will become as if it were all a dream."

"Just because it seems like a door isn't opening when you are asking from God, just remember; the mere fact that you are asking means the door is open."
