"I’ve always rejected being understood. To be understood is to prostitute oneself. I prefer to be taken seriously for what I’m not, remaining humanly unknown, with naturalness and all due respect''. 

-Fernando Pessoa

"You don't have to be this extreme with your own training, but remember you can't expect miracles to happen at the starting line without putting in the work ahead of time. Make your training count like Zatopek did."

1. "There are two types of problems in the world (i) The one which can be solved (ii) The one which can not be solved. Why to worry about the (i) which can be solved? What is the benefit of worrying for (ii) which can not be solved. Hence just chill and try to solve the problem which can be solved instead of worrying about it and leave the problem which can not be solved"

1366 - The Prophet Mohammad PBUH says:
ﻻ ﺧﻴﺮ ﻟﻚ ﻓﻲ ﺻﺤﺒﺔ ﻣﻦ ﻻ ﻳﺮﻯ ﻟﻚ ﻣﺎ ﻳﺮﻯ ﻟﻨﻔﺴﻪ.
No good can you find in the company of the one who does not count himself equal to you.
Nahjul Fasahah

'Within every one of us there is a Shimr that has the potential to kill Al-Hussain (as). Our duty is to stop ourselves from being such individuals by focusing towards the direction of worship and obedience (to Allah).'

Don't do your job for Allah, do Allah's job. The difference is just that Hussain may be in Karbala and me gaining knowledge for the sake of Allah…!

Seyed Morteza Avini

-----

Meaning: Doing our jobs for Allah isn't enough, because there may be another responsibility for us to take. So we should try to seek and find what our duty is and where it resides. This is the true meaning of basirah (wisdom).

"Everybody out there ...every American who is thinking  'l'll go to Canada' ...(that) you get to flee to another country, (to) give up here...Being an American citizen is like family...you are in it whether you like it or not."

“It's not a man's working hours that is important, it is how he spends his leisure time.” 
 

“A little too much anger, too often or at the wrong time, can destroy more than you would ever imagine. Above all, mind what you say. “Behold how much wood is kindled by how small a fire, and the tongue is a fire”—that’s the truth.” 

 

“That is to say, I pray for you. And there's an intimacy in it. That's the truth.” 
 

“You can know a thing to death and be for all purposes completely ignorant of it. A man can know his father, or his son, and there might still be nothing between them but loyalty and love and mutual incomprehension.” 

 

"Now that I look back, it seems to me that in all that deep darkness a miracle was preparing. So I am right to remember it as a blessed time, and myself as waiting in confidence, even if I had no idea what I was waiting for."

 

“All this seems preposterous. But in fact one lapse of judgment can quickly create a situation in which only foolish choices are possible.” 

 

“And now they say my heart is failing. The doctor used the term "angina pectoris," which has a theological sound, like misericordia.” 

 

There are a lot of such gems in Marilynne Robinson's book Gilead.

“If most of us are ashamed of shabby clothes and shoddy furniture let us be more ashamed of shabby ideas and shoddy philosophies.... It would be a sad situation if the wrapper were better than the meat wrapped inside it.”
