From the Blessed LIPS of the PIOUS

Subjects are not the slaves of their rulers, they remain as free as they be when they are born to their mothers. (Hazrat Umar – radi Allahu anhu)
Moderation is most meritorious in affluence and pardon most praise-worthy in power. (Hazrat Umar bin Abdul Aziz – radi Allahu anhu)
A student who learns half-heartedly and ungratefully can never succeed. A student who is humble and weak often reaches his goal. (Imam Shaafa’i - radi Allahu anhu)
The test of a true Muslim’s mind is that it is always, and to all intents, strictly obedient to the Will of Allah, is constantly afraid of behaving in a manner which is apt to displease Him resulting in the withdrawing of His Grace. (Hazrat Kwaja Moinuddin Chisti – radi Allahu anhu)
