Wisdom from Prophets

 The story of a believer is like that of a branch of a tree which the winds move around. The believer gets pushed around by pains and illnesses. 

The story of a hypocrite is like that of a straight cane which is never bent or harmed until death approaches and it bends down.

Wisdom from Quran

It is He Who has created you from dust then from a sperm-drop, then from a leech-like clot; then does he get you out as a child: then lets you reach your age of full strength; then lets you become old,- though of you there are some who die before;- and lets you reach a Term appointed; in order that ye may learn wisdom (40:67

Wisdom from Imams

Value of a man depends upon his courage; his veracity depends upon his self-respect and his chastity depends upon his sense of honor. -Imam Ali (a.s.)
