The happiness of God-Almighty from seeing a sinner repenting is much more than the joy of a lone traveler who finds his missing animal together with the provisions of journey in a dark night.Imam Baqir (a.s) ~ Kitab al-Kafi ~ Volume: 2, Page: 436 (via thelittlephilosopher)
”A good character is, in all cases, the fruit of personal exertion. It is not inherited from parents; it is not created by external advantages; it is no necessary appendage of birth, wealth, talents, or station; but it is the result of one’s own endeavors - the fruit and reward of good principles manifested in a course of virtuous and honorable action.” - Joel Hawes
i want to live so densely. lush. and slow in the next few years, that a year becomes ten years, and my past becomes only a page in the book of my life.
