>> "Arise! Awake! and stop not until the goal is reached."

>> "In a day, when you don't come across any problems - you can be sure that you are travelling in a wrong path"

>> "The fire that warms us can also consume us; it is not the fault of the fire."

>> "You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.
