Quotes: 1. A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 2. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 3. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 4. Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 5. I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. 6. Let me into your lives, your world. Live on me, so that you may become truly alive. 7. Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day. 8. For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul?  9. Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 10. But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first. 11. If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. 12. If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. 13. Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. 14. With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. 15. Judge not, that ye be not judged. 16.  Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 17. Arise, and be not afraid.  18. Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

O People, it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have right over you. 3. Even as the fingers of the two hands are equal, so are human beings equal to one another. No one has any right, nor any preference to claim over another. You are brothers. 4. Avoid cruelty and injustice for, on the Day of Judgment, the same will turn into several darknesses; and guard yourselves against miserliness; for this has ruined nations who lived before you. 4. Do not betray, do not be excessive, do not kill a newborn child. 5. The best among you are those who are best to their wives. 5. The ink of the scholar is more sacred than the blood of the martyr.  7. Remember God in prosperity, and He will remember you in adversity. 8. Every good act is charity. Your smiling in your brother’s face is charity… putting a wanderer in the right path is charity; assisting the blind is charity; removing stones and thorns and other obstructions from the road is charity; giving water to the thirsty is charity. 9. A man’s true wealth hereafter is the good he does in this world to his fellowmen.  8. You will not enter paradise until you have faith. And you will not complete your faith until you love one another. 10. The worldly comforts are not for me. I am like a traveler, who takes rest under a tree in the shade and then goes on his way. 11. Strive always to excel in virtue and truth. 12. To overcome evil with good is good, to resist evil by evil is evil. 13. The greatest of wealth is the richness of the soul. 14. It is better to sit alone than in company with the bad, and it is better still to sit with the good than alone. It is better to speak to a seeker of knowledge than to remain silent, but silence is better than idle words.
