God bless those who fight their lusts and escape from their worldly bonds

هَلَكَ خُزَّانُ الْأَمْوَالِ وَهُمْ أَحْيَاءٌ، وَالْعُلَمَاءُ بَاقُونَ مَا بَقِيَ الليلُ والنهار: أَعْيَانُهُمْ مَفْقُودَةٌ  وأَمْثَالُهُمْ فِي الْقُلُوبِ مَوْجُودَةٌ

Gone Are those who pile wealth, even while they are alive. But those who are knowledgeable stay as long as there is night & day: although their bodies may be dead, but their knowledge is alive in the hearts.

الدُّنيا دُوَلٌ فَأجْمِلْ في طَلَبِها وَ اصْطَبِرْ حتّى تَأتيَكَ دَولَتُكَ

Earthly life has ups and downs, so only pursue what’s essential, and endure until victory comes.

إنَّ الدُّنيا كَالحَيَّةِ، لَيِّـنٌ مَسُّها، قاتِلٌ سَمُّها، فَأعْرِضْ عَمّا يُعْجِبُكَ فيها لِقِلَّةِ ما يَصْحَبُكَ مِنْها، وَ كُنْ آنَسَ ما تَكُونُ بِها أحْذَرَ ما تَكُونُ مِنْها

This world is like a snake: its skin is soft, but its venom is deadly. Therefore, avoid what you find attractive in it, because you will take little of it when you depart. And as much as it makes you happy, be vigilant.

إنَّ الدُّنيا دارُ فَجائِعَ ، مَنْ عُوجِلَ فيها فُجِعَ بِنَفْسِهِ ، وَمَنْ اُمْهِلَ فيها فُجِعَ بِأحِبَّتِهِ

Earthly life is an existence of tragedies; he who is being hurried will lose his life, and he who is being delayed will lose his loved ones.
