“The reality of Life is Life itself, whose beginning is not in the womb, and whose ending is not in the grave. For the years that pass are naught but a moment in eternal life.” — Kahlil Gibran

“When you perceive His hidden secrets, give

Your life to God’s affairs and truly live —

At last, made perfect in Reality,

You will be gone, and only God will be.” — Farid ud-Din Attar
