    Preals from the ocean

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Mans, May 27, 2016.

    These are a few quotes of Imam Ali to Muslims. He was chosen from God to be leader of Islam after messenger of Islam (about 1380 years ago) , but sadly oppositions ( The groups like ISIS) blocked his way and didn't allow him to govern. They created a series of war against Imam Ali to annihilate him. He survived in all the war but when he was praying in a mosque a terrorist that hidden somewhere attacked and wounded him. Imam Ali dead two days later.

    I found these quotes interesting, translated them and sent to WF



    When capacity is increased, the desire will be decreased.


    Self- analysis is the most beneficial knowledge.


    There are two sharers for wealth, events and heirs.


    Being needless of apologizing is better than apologizing.


    Speak to be known, because man is hidden under his tongue.


    There are two sort of hungry persons that will never become full, the wisher of wealth and the wisher of science.


    The most unable man is who can’t find a friend and the more unable man than him is who miss the friend that he has found.


    Violence is a strike of insanity, if the doer regrets; and if not his insanity will be perpetual.


    The sin that makes you regretful is better than a right action that makes you proud.


    When you became not what you wish to be (after all efforts), so don’t consider about what you are.


    Tolerating others is the half of wisdom.


    Who welcomes the thought and ideas of others, will know the wrong situations.


    The tools of headship are the broadness of thought and experience.


    The nature of a man is known in the revolution of conditions.


    Envy of a friend is the sign of an imperfect friendship.


    The fruit of default is regret and the fruit of forethought is health.

    These are excellent thoughts. I'm a little confused by the translation of some words, though. I'm not sure what an 'unable man' is or what 'headship' is.

    This is my favourite one, because I never thought of science or wealth this way before:

    There are two sort of hungry persons that will never become full, the wisher of wealth and the wisher of science.

    Thank you for posting, Mans.

    Hi, jannert

    I chose Headship that does mean " leadership" - "Management"

    "unable man" was the phrase that I myself wrote and it dose mean " a person that is not able." In the quote the meaning is so :" a guy that is not able to retain his friendship."
