about

When I think of this quotation, it soothes my soul and changes my perspective on how to view life. Like fire, life’s tests and difficulties help to burn away the impurities in our characters and leave only the pure gold.

lyrics

The world is but a show, vain and empty, a mere nothing, bearing the semblance of reality. Set not your affections upon it… The world is like a vapor in a desert, which the thirsty dreameth to be water and striveth after it with all his might, until when he cometh unto it, he findeth it to be mere illusion.
-Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, CLIII, page 328.

O Son of Being!
Busy not thyself with this world, for with fire We test the gold, and with gold We test Our servants.
-Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, Arabic #55.
