Jesus (as) said: When a mule is left unridden, unworked and unloaded for a long time, its nature will change and will become bad tempered. Hearts are just the same, when they are not softened by the remembrance of death followed by the perseverance of worship, they will become rough and hardened.

I pass my nights while I don't have anything, I rise in the morning while I do not have anything. However, there is no one on the face of this earth that is richer than I am.

(Bihar-al-anwar/ vol 14/ pg 239/ hadith 17)

I tended to the dead and gave them life by God's will. I tended to the fool but I was unable to correct him. Jesus was then asked: Oh spirit of God! Who is a fool? Jesus replied: One who is enamoured with himself and his own ideas, who seas only himself in possession of every virtue, and who considers only himself as right and no one else. Such a person as this is a fool to whose cure there is no road.

(Bihar-al-anwar/ vol 14/ pg 324)

I think one of the most beautiful quotes in history is attributed to Jesus,

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. . . And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." (1 Corinthians 13:4 - 8, 13)

All the Best,
