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

Do they not travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those before them? But the home of the hereafter is best, for those who do right. Will ye not then understand? (12:109)

Wisdom from Imams

Oh worldly things. Oh gold and silver. Go away and deceive others but Ali, for he has divorced you forever- Imam Ali (AS)
