"Maktub"


(picture's source)

Quotes by Paulo Coelho:

"We are afraid of losing what we have, whether it’s our life or our possessions and property. But this fear evaporates when we understand that our life stories and the history of the world were written by the same hand."

"My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer," the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky. "Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Choices, choices, choices.. Life is full of choices..

May Allah guide us in making the right ones.. Amen.
