O daughter of Babylon, if in a single day the Lord casts you down to the pit, destroyed on the mountains of Israel.   And in the valleys your finest sons have become but morsels for the buzzards and foxes.

Would the world sob and cry?   Would the world place a lilly on the grave?    Would anyone shed a tear?


Or would the world rejoice, as they board their flights by only showing a ticket to a smiling flight attendant?

"The only man who behaved sensibly was my tailor; he took my measurement anew every time he saw me, while all the rest went on with their old measurements and expected them to fit me."

 Everyone tries to define this thing called Character. It's not hard. Character is doing what's right when nobody's looking.

People who have no hold over their process of thinking are likely to be ruined by liberty of thought. If thought is immature, liberty of thought becomes a method of converting men into animals.
 
Muhammad Iqbal
