Anita Moorjani - painting


"Learning to love others begins with learning to love ourselves unconditionally first. I will never let myself down, treat myself like a doormat, or make myself small so others can feel big. I have learned that this is the biggest gift that I give not only to myself, but also to the planet, because I paint others with the same brush as I use on myself." -Anita Moorjani

Mikee Cojuangco-Jaworski - leave a good mark


"My mom would always tell me - Every time you cross paths with someone, give them the courtesy due to them. It’s probably the first and last time the person is ever going to see you. So better leave a good mark." ~Mikee Cojuangco-Jaworski


A timely one:


"At some point you will realize that you have done too much for someone, that the only next possible step to do is to stop. Leave them alone. Walk away. It’s not like you’re giving up, and it’s not like you shouldn’t try. It’s just that you have to draw the line of determination from desperation. What is truly yours will eventually be yours, and what is not, no matter how hard you try, will never be." ~Anon

St. Fulbert of Chartres - Your Greatness

"How brief is our span of life compared with the time since you created the universe. How tiny we are compared with the enormity of your universe. How trivial are our concerns compared with the complexity of your universe. How stupid we are compared with the genius of your creation. Yet during every minute and every second of our lives you are present, within and around us. You give your whole and undivided attention to each and every one of us. Our concerns are your concerns. And you are infinitely patient with our stupidity. I thank you with all my heart - knowing that my thanks are worthless compared to your greatness." ~St. Fulbert of Chartres (960-1028)

Clinton Nzedimma - from a Man's Perspective

"A Man doesn’t have to be a car owner, neither does he have to be Prince or a Hero to win a woman’s Heart ( Not just a Woman's Heart but a Real Woman's Heart). Women are touched by simple things and kind gestures. What impresses a woman in a man is the way he respects her values and ethics. Women Love Genuine, Confident and Sincere men. A Man doesn’t need to fabricate anything to impress a woman he just needs to be utterly honest and straightforward. Women don’t look for chivalry or great looks but they value Honesty and Truthfulness in a Relationship. You can win her heart and charm her by being genuine rather than being fake. You can touch a Woman’s Soul with Love, Affection and Respect." ~Clinton Nzedimma

William J. Clinton Quotes

“I learned a lot from the stories my uncle, aunts and grandparents told me: that no one is perfect but most people are good; that people can’t be judged by their worst or weakest moments; that harsh judgments can make hypocrites of us all; that a lot of life is just showing up and hanging on; that laughter is often the best, and sometimes the only response to pain........... Perhaps most important, I learned that everyone has a story – of dreams and nightmares, hope and heartache, love and loss, courage and fear, sacrifice and selfishness. All my life I’ve been interested in other people’s stories. I wanted to know them, understand them, feel them. When I grew up into politics, I always felt the main point of my work was to give people a chance to have better stories." ~President Bill Clinton, My Life

"The real differences around the world today are not between Jews and Arabs; Protestants and Catholics; Muslims, Croats, and Serbs.

Renante M Areola - permaculture

"During the middle ages, English aristocrats usually hide where their wealth and food are coming from. They build vast ornamented lawns and gardens infront of their manor houses to impress the middle class. The middle class then copied that idea and carried it with them overseas... in USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc. Every one nowadays has that little aristocrat thing infront of their homes. Permaculture intends to attack that idea of nonsense energy consuming, costly and unproductive habit. We are not aristocrat neither belong to the middle class; grow your own food infront and all around your homes." ~Renante M Areola

President José “Pepe” Mujica Quotes

“A president is a high-level official who is elected to carry out a function. He is not a king, not a god. He is not the witch doctor of a tribe who knows everything. He is a civil servant. I think the ideal way of living is to live like the vast majority of people whom we attempt to serve and represent.” ~José “Pepe” Mujica (Source)on being a President

“As soon as politicians start climbing up the ladder, they suddenly become kings. I don’t know how it works, but what I do know is that republics came to the world to make sure that no one is more than anyone else. The pomp of office, is like something left over from a feudal past: “You need a palace, red carpet, a lot of people behind you saying, ‘Yes, sir.’ I think all of that is awful.” ~José “Pepe” Mujica on staying humble in office.

“Businesses just want to increase their profits; it’s up to the government to make sure they distribute enough of those profits so workers have the money to buy the goods they produce. It’s no mystery — the less poverty, the more commerce. The most important investment we can make is in human resources.” ~José “Pepe” Mujica told businessmen at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on redistribution of wealth

“From afar, it seems like a war without a solution and like a long sacrifice for the entire country. So when a president appears who tries to open a path to peace, I think that deserves support, because there is a lot of pain, and if they try to settle scores, the war will never end. But there is an opportunity. I would feel selfish if I did not help in any way." ~José “Pepe” Mujica on ending conflict

“Help does not mean to intervene. I will not meddle if I am not invited to do so. But if I can serve as a go-between with my experience, I will support the government’s call for dialogue with the rebel forces who also have their problems, who also have their fears. I think all us Latin Americans have to help.” ~José “Pepe” Mujica on ending conflict

“I’m not the poorest president. The poorest is the one who needs a lot to live. My lifestyle is a consequence of my wounds. I’m the son of my history. There have been years when I would have been happy just to have a mattress.” ~José “Pepe” Mujica (Source) on being the poorest President in the world.

“I have a way of life that I don’t change just because I am a president. I earn more than I need, even if it’s not enough for others. For me, it is no sacrifice, it’s a duty.” ~José “Pepe” Mujica (Source), on donating 90% of his salary to carity

“I’ve seen some springs that ended up being terrible winters. We human beings are gregarious. We can’t live alone. For our lives to be possible, we depend on society. It’s one thing to overturn a government or block the streets. But it’s a different matter altogether to create and build a better society, one that needs organization, discipline and long-term work. Let’s not confuse the two of them. I want to make it clear: I feel sympathetic with that youthful energy, but I think it’s not going anywhere if it doesn’t become more mature.” ~José “Pepe” Mujica on revolutions and revolts

“It has always been like that with changes. In 1913, we established divorce as a right for women in Uruguay. You know what they were saying back then? That families would dissolve. That it was the end of good manners and society. There has always been a conservative and traditional opinion out there that’s afraid of change. When I was young and would go dancing at balls, we’d have to wear suits and ties. Otherwise they wouldn’t let us in.

“My goal is to achieve a little less injustice in Uruguay, to help the most vulnerable and to leave behind a political way of thinking, a way of looking at the future that will be passed on and used to move forward. There’s nothing short-term, no victory around the corner. I will not achieve paradise or anything like that. What I want is to fight for the common good to progress. Life slips by. The way to prolong it is for others to continue your work.” ~José “Pepe” Mujica (Source) on his goal for Uruguay

“To live in accordance with how one thinks. Be yourself and don’t try to impose your criteria on the rest. I don’t expect others to live like me. I want to respect people’s freedom, but I defend my freedom. And that comes with the courage to say what you think, even if sometimes others don’t share those views.” ~José “Pepe” Mujica (Source)on the secret to happiness

“We applied a very simple principle: Recognize the facts. Abortion is old as the world. Gay marriage, please — it’s older than the world. We had Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, please. To say it’s modern, come on, it’s older than we are. It’s an objective reality that it exists. For us, not legalizing it would be to torture people needlessly.” ~José “Pepe” Mujica (Source) on abortion and same-sex marriage

“We can almost recycle everything now. If we lived within our means, by being prudent, the 7 billion people in the world could have everything they needed. Global politics should be moving in that direction. But we think as people and countries, not as a species.” ~José “Pepe” Mujica (Source) on global consumption

“We have sacrificed the old immaterial gods, and now we are occupying the temple of the Market-God. He organizes our economy, our politics, our habits, our lives, and even provides us with rates and credit cards and gives us the appearance of happiness." ~José “Pepe” Mujica (Source) on materialism

“What’s sad is that an 80-year-old grandpa has to be the open-minded one. Old people aren’t old because of their age, but because of what’s in their heads. They are horrified at this, but they aren’t horrified at what’s happening in the streets?” ~José “Pepe” Mujica (Source)on age.

“Worse that drugs is drug trafficking. Much worse. Drugs are a disease, and I don’t think that there are good drugs or that marijuana is good. Nor cigarettes. No addiction is good. I include alcohol. The only good addiction is love. Forget everything else.” ~José “Pepe” Mujica (Source)on addiction

Yasmin Mogahed Quotes


“After years of falling into the same pattern of disappointments and heartbreak, I finally began to realize something profound. I had always thought that love of dunya meant being attached to material things. And I was not attached to material things. I was attached to people. I was attached to moments. I was attached to emotions. So I thought that the love of dunya just did not apply to me. What I didn’t realize was that people, moments, emotions are all a part of dunya. What I didn’t realize is that all the pain I had experienced in life was due to one thing, and one thing only: love of dunya.” ~Yasmin Mogahed

“As much as you can, keep dunya (worldly life) in your hand--not in your heart. That means when someone insults you, keep it out of your heart so it doesn't make you bitter or defensive. When someone praises you, also keep it out of your heart, so it doesn't make you arrogant and self-deluded. When you face hardship and stress, don't absorb it in your heart, so you don't become hopeless and overwhelmed. Instead keep it in your hands and realize that everything passes. When you're given a gift by God, don't hold it in your heart. Hold it in your hand so that you don't begin to love the gift more than the giver. And so that when it is taken away you can truly respond with 'inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon': 'indeed we belong to God, and to God we return'.” ~Yasmin Mogahed

“As Muslim women, we have been liberated from this silent bondage. We don't need society's standard of beauty or fashion, to define our worth. We don't need to become just like men to be honored, and we don't need to wait for a prince to save or complete us. Our worth, our honor, our salvation, and our completion lie not in the slave. But, in the Lord of the slave.” ~Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

“But, this dark place is not the end. Remember that the darkness of night precedes the dawn. And as long as your heart still beats, this is not the death of it. You don’t have to die here. Sometimes, the ocean floor is only a stop on the journey. And it is when you are at this lowest point, that you are faced with a choice. You can stay there at the bottom, until you drown. Or you can gather pearls and rise back up—stronger from the swim, and richer from the jewels.” ~Yasmin Mogahed

“Don’t despair if your heart has been through a lot of trauma. Sometimes that’s how beautiful hearts are remade: they are shattered first.” ~Yasmin Mogahed

“He knows that behind each false door is a drop. And if we enter it, we will fall. In His mercy, He keeps those false doors closed.” ~Yasmin Mogahed

“However the problem wasn't with the vase, or even that the vases kept breaking. The problem was that I kept putting them on the edges of tables.” ~Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

“I'm not here to be on display. And my body is not for public consumption. I will not be reduced to an object, or a pair of legs to sell shoes. I'm a soul, a mind, a servant of God. My worth is defined by the beauty of my soul, my heart, my moral character. So I won't worship your beauty standards, and I don't submit to your fashion sense. My submission is to something higher.” ~Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart, (A Letter to the Culture that Raised Me)

“If there is one recipe for unhappiness it is that: expectations.” ~Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

“If you allow dunya to own your heart, like the ocean that owns the boat, it will take over. You will sink down to the depths of the sea. You will touch the ocean floor.” ~Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

“Keep going. You're almost there and remember, the sun is most beautiful as it's going away.” ~Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

“Know that transformation sometimes begins with a fall. So never curse the fall.” ~Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

“Like the sun that sets at the end of the day, so too will Ramadan come and go, leaving only it's mark on our heart's sky.” ~Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

“Loss; is the returning of what never actually belonged to us in the first place.” ~Yasmin Mogahed

“My value as a woman is not measured by the size of my waist or the number of men who like me. My worth as a human being is measured on a higher scale: a scale of righteousness and piety. And my purpose in life-despite what fashion magazines say-is something more sublime than just looking good for men.” ~Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

“Never curse a fall. The ground is where humility lives.” ~Yasmin Mogahed

“Real love brings about calm—not inner torment. True love allows you to be at peace with yourself and with God. That is why Allah says: “that you may dwell in tranquility.” Hawa is the opposite. Hawa will make you miserable. And just like a drug, you will crave it always, but never be satisfied. You will chase it to your own detriment, but never reach it.” ~Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

“So often we experience things in life, and yet never see the connections between them. When we are given hardship, or feel pain, we often fail to consider that the experience may be the direct cause or result of another action or experience. Sometimes we fail to recognize the direct connection between the pain in our lives and our relationship with Allah SWT” ~Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

“Some hearts understand each other, even in silence.” ~Yasmin Mogahed

“Sometimes you search so hard for words. You look for a way to interpret the language of this heart and the unspoken bond you feel. But in the end you are left with nothing but silence. And deep down you hope it’s understood.” ~Yasmin Mogahed

“There are internal chains and external chains. All the external chains in the world won't enslave you, if you are free inside. And all the external 'freedom' in the world won't liberate you, if you are chained inside.
Let go. And you'll know Freedom.” ~Yasmin Mogahed

“There’s something amazing about this life. The very same worldly attribute that causes us pain is also what gives us relief: Nothing here lasts. What does that mean? It means that the breathtakingly beautiful rose in my vase will wither tomorrow. It means that my youth will neglect me. But it also means that the sadness I feel today will change tomorrow. My pain will die. My laughter won’t last forever but neither will my tears. We say this life isn’t perfect. And it isn’t. It isn’t perfectly good. But, it also isn’t perfectly bad, either.” ~Yasmin Mogahed

“This world cannot break you—unless you give it permission. And it cannot own you unless you hand it the keys—unless you give it your heart. And so, if you have handed those keys to dunya for a while—take them back. This isn’t the End. You don’t have to die here. Reclaim your heart and place it with its rightful owner:
God.” ~Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

“Time of difficulty test our faith, our fortitude and our strenght. During these times, the level of our imaan becomes manifest” ~Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

“To some,Islam is nothing but a code of rules and regulations.But,to those who understand,it is a perfect vision of life” ~Yasmin Mogahed

“We must also realize that nothing happens without a purpose. Nothing. Not even broken hearts. Not even pain. That broken heart and that pain are lessons and signs for us. They are warnings that something is wrong. They are warnings that we need to make a change. Just like the pain of being burned is what warns us to remove our hand from the fire, emotional pain warns us that we need to make an internal change. We need to detach. Pain is a form of forced detachment. Like the loved one who hurts you again and again and again, the more dunya hurts us, the more we inevitably detach from it. The more we inevitably stop loving it.” ~Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

“When you fall in love with a work of art, you’d die to meet the artist. I am a student of the galleries of Pacific sunsets, full moon rises on the ocean, the clouds from an airplane, autumn forests in Raleigh, first fallen snows.
And I’m dying to meet the artist.” ~Yasmin Mogahed

“When you have friends, don’t expect your friends to fill your emptiness. When you get married, don’t expect your spouse to fulfill your every need. When you’re an activist, don’t put your hope in the results. When you’re in trouble don’t depend on yourself. Don’t depend on people. Depend on Allah.” ~Yasmin Mogahed

Jessica Jensen - feelings


"Give yourself time to be sad, frustrated, and angry. Give yourself time to heal, accept, and to grow. Time doesn’t erase anything, but it can provide you with enough space to be able to breathe again. And then one day you wake up and your heart has a little bit of sunshine in it. And day by day people offer you pieces of their hearts to help remake your own. Allow yourself to be where you are at, to feel what you are feeling, and to experience everything that means. And during this process, look and listen for that glimmer of hope. It is there, I promise. And it is waiting for you to see it. Because one of the most beautiful things about humans is their capacity to heal, grow, and survive. Facing it. That is how you get through." ~Jessica Jensen

Nick Baylis - resilient personality

"It is the ability to focus our attention on self-motivating thoughts, rather than being mesmerised by negatives, which rests at the very heart of a healthy approach to life. The sort of resilient personality who can bounce back quickly after a major setback, does so largely because they quickly generate positive emotions which serve as a physical and psychological antidote to bad news." ~Nick Baylis

Romulus Linney - command

"You must simply love to write. Then, when there's interest in one of your stories, it's a bonus. There's a lot of giving yourself up to it than being so much in command of anything.
