Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.

I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.

A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
