A mirror reflects what you see, and a black mirror shows the dark side of it.
You cannot attain and maintain physical condition unless you are morally and mentally conditioned. And it is impossible to be in moral condition unless you are spiritually conditioned. I always told my players that our team condition depended on two factors -- how hard they worked on the floor during practice and how well they behaved between practices.
Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can't buy more hours. Scientists can't invent new minutes. And you can't save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you've wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.
My name is `Abdu'l-BahÃ¡ [literally, Servant of Baha]. My qualification is `Abdu'l-BahÃ¡. My reality is `Abdu'l-BahÃ¡. My praise is `Abdu'l-BahÃ¡. Thraldom to the Blessed Perfection [BahÃ¡'u'llÃ¡h] is my glorious and refulgent diadem, and servitude to all the human race my perpetual religion... No name, no title, no mention, no commendation have I, nor will ever have, except `Abdu'l-BahÃ¡. This is my longing. This is my greatest yearning. This is my eternal life. This is my everlasting glory.
Governments, like clocks, go from the motion men give them, and as governments are made and moved by men, so by them they are ruined too. Wherefore governments rather depend upon men, than men upon governments. Let men be good, and the government cannot be bad; if it be ill, they will cure it. But if men be bad, let the government be never so good, they will endeavour to warp and spoil it to their turn.
