happier destiny within their own borders.

In this life struggle, here I am among you fully cognizant
that a true believer has no fear of what God has ordained for him.

will end with their departure.

I am totally against the idea that a Muslim woman should
not have the same opportunities as a Muslim man to learn,

intolerable and ridiculous.
It's not Islam.
- King Hussein I

I believe that everything happens for a reason.
People change so that you can learn to let go,
things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right,
you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,
and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
- Marilyn Monroe

Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,

Beauty for your eyes to see,
Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.
