Be sure, there is something waiting for you, after much patience, to astonish you to a degree that you forget the bitterness of the pain.
- Imam Ali (A.S)
Imam Ali | Sermon 42 | Nahjul Balagha
O people! I am not so much afraid of anything from your side except your two weaknesses: one is your wish for achieving and realizing your every desire & cravings; and the other is your belief in inordinate hopes (day-dreams).

Remember that avarice and greed will prevent you from following the path of Allah and excessive ambitions in this life will make you forget the Hereafter.

Beware that world often turns its face quickly away from you and usually what is left of its pleasures for you is not more than the dampness in glass of water after it has been turned upside down and completely drained. Beware that hereafter is in front of you!

This life and Hereafter are like two mothers and human beings are like children. Take the life to come as you mother and do not let this world adopt you as her child; because on the Day of Judgment every child will be attached to its Mother.

Remember! Today is the Day of action and there is no reckoning while tomorrow is the Day of reckoning but there would be no (opportunity for) action.
