Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow. -Helen Keller I love this quote! Always look forward and be positive! If you have a positive attitude in life, it will be easier to avoid the negative and pessimistic thoughts in your mind.
To overcome evil with good is good, to resist evil by evil is evil. -Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) Being a Muslim, I feel that because of how the media is portraying Islam, I have to defend it any chance I get. Therefore, I think my Wednesday Wisdom posts are a great time to show what true Islam is really about. I am going to try and use quotes from the Holy Quran or the sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as much as I can especially these days. I really want people to know that Islam is a religion of peace and not violence (as it is so often depicted.)
If you want to be happy, be. -Leo Tolstoy This is such a straightforward quote and good words to live by. I think we are our own worst enemies when it come to happiness. We are often trying to chase it (if we get xyz then we will be happy) when in fact if we simply decide we want to be it, then we seek those things that make us happy. We should choose to become it rather than always be on a quest to find it. What do you think?
