Say, “O disbelievers,
I do not worship what you worship.
Nor are you worshippers of what I worship.
Nor will I be a worshipper of what you worship.
Nor will you be worshippers of what I worship.
For you is your religion, and for me is my religion.”

Surat Al-Kāfirūn (The Disbelievers)

I never lost as much but twice,
And that was in the sod.
Twice have I stood a beggar
Before the door of God!


Angels—twice descending
Reimbursed my store—
Burglar! Banker—Father!
I am poor once more!

— Emily Dickinson, poem 49

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.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8

I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly
because you tread on my dreams
WB Yeats

Sometimes you just have to die a little inside in order to be reborn and rise again stronger and wiser version of you.

Poem 747 by Emily Dickinson

IT dropped so low in my regard

I heard it hit the ground,

And go to pieces on the stones

At bottom of my mind;  

Yet blamed the fate that fractured, less    

Than I reviled myself

For entertaining plated wares  

Upon my silver shelf.

Poem 540 by Emily Dickinson

I took my Power in my Hand - 

And went against the World - 

'Twas not so much as  - David had -

But I - was twice as Bold - 

I aimed by Pebble - but Myself

Was all the one that fell -

Was it Goliath - was too large

Or was Myself - too small?

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain:
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
— Emily Dickinson (via kari-shma)
