"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. "

"Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children."

His definition of "Face"- "A look which reveals inward stress adds more beauty to the face, no matter how much tragedy and pain it bespeaks; but the face which, in silence, does not announce hidden mysteries is not beautiful regardless of the symmetry of its features. The cup does not entice our lips unless the wine's color is seen through the transparent crystal."

His definition of "Affection"- "The heart's affections are divided like the branches of the cedar tree; if the tree loses one strong branch it will suffer but it does not die. It will pour all its vitality into the next branch so that it will grow and fill the empty place"
