"If men knew what was in seeking knowledge, they would seek it even through shedding blood and wading into the depth of the seas."
- Imam Zain al-Abedin (ع) al-Mahjja al-Bayda v. 1, p. 26 (via antieverythingism)

"He who is attracted to you because you showed perhaps your legs or your shape - those legs are not going to look like that for the rest of your life, nor will you be able to maintain that shape forever. So therefore it is better for you to realise that he who is attracted to your heart, your goodness and your character is the one to whom no matter what you look like, he will love you and adore you and 60 years down the road would still tell you that you’re ‘the one’."
