Quotes: Happy New Year

And what does the Lord require of you? Only to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with your God. -- Micah 6:8

It’s good to leave each day behind,
like flowing water, free of sadness.
Yesterday is gone and its tale told.
Today new seeds are growing.
-- Jalaluddin Rumi

Good is not that your possessions, wealth and power... increase, but good is that your knowledge increases and your insight grows more powerful, and that the people are proud to serve God. For when you do good, you praise God. -- Imam Ali

Man has three friends on whose company he relies. First, wealth which goes with him only while good fortune lasts. Second, his relatives [but] they go only as far as the grave, [and] leave him there. The third friend, his good deeds, go with him beyond the grave. -- the Talmud
