162  quote(s)  | Page 1 / 4




B eautify your tongues, O people, with truthfulness, and adorn your souls with the ornament of honesty. Beware, O people, that ye deal not treacherously with any one. Be ye the trustees of God amongst His creatures, and the emblems of His generosity amidst His people. They that follow their lusts and corrupt inclinations, have erred and dissipated their efforts. They, indeed, are of the lost




Bah Quote n8617 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 297

Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 128 

   




D o not busy yourselves in your own concerns; let your thoughts be fixed upon that which will rehabilitate the fortunes of mankind and sanctify the hearts and souls of men. This can best be achieved through pure and holy deeds, through a virtuous life and a goodly behavior.

Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 9394 

   




T he civilization, so often vaunted by the learned exponents of arts and sciences, will, if allowed to overleap the bounds of moderation, bring great evil upon men




Bah Quote n8614 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 342 

   




B lessed are the learned that pride not themselves on their attainments; and well is it with the righteous that mock not the sinful, but rather conceal their misdeeds, so that their own shortcomings may remain veiled to mens eyes




Bah Quote n8613 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 315 

   




T he purpose of the one true God in manifesting Himself is to summon all mankind to truthfulness and sincerity, to piety and trustworthiness, to resignation and submissiveness to the Will of God, to forbearance and kindliness, to uprightness and wisdom. His object is to array every man with the mantle of a saintly character, and to adorn him with the ornament of holy and goodly deeds




Bah Quote n8612 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 299

Bah Quote n8611 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 296

Bah Quote n8610 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 289 

   




T he Purpose of the one true God, exalted be His glory, in revealing Himself unto men is to lay bare those gems that lie hidden within the mine of their true and inmost selves. That the divers communions of the earth, and the manifold systems of religious belief, should never be allowed to foster the feelings of animosity among men, is, in this Day, of the essence of the Faith of God and His Religion




Bah Quote n8609 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 287 

   




B e generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor, and look upon him with a bright and friendly face. Be a treasure to the poor, an admonisher to the rich, an answerer of the cry of the needy . . .




Bah Quote n8608 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 285 

   




B e unjust to no man, and show all meekness to all men. Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression. Let integrity and uprightness distinguish all thine acts. Be a home for the stranger, a balm to the suffering, a tower of strength for the fugitive




Bah Quote n8607 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 285 

   




W hoso ariseth among you to teach the Cause of his Lord, let him, before all else, teach his own self, that his speech may attract the hearts of them that hear him. Unless he teacheth his own self, the words of his mouth will not influence the heart of the seeker




Bah Quote n8606 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 277 

   




T o whatever place We may be banished, however great the tribulation We may suffer, they who are the people of God must, with fixed resolve and perfect confidence, keep their eyes directed towards the Day Spring of Glory, and be busied in whatever may be conducive to the betterment of the world and the education of its peoples




Bah Quote n8605 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 270 

   




H e should not wish for others that which he doth not wish for himself, nor promise that which he doth not fulfil




Bah Quote n8604 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 266 

   




T hat seeker should, also, regard backbiting as grievous error, and keep himself aloof from its dominion, inasmuch as backbiting quencheth the light of the heart, and extinguisheth the life of the soul. He should be content with little, and be freed from all inordinate desire




Bah Quote n8603 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 265 

   




H e should be content with little, and be freed from all inordinate desire




Bah Quote n8602 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 265 

   




F or the tongue is a smoldering fire, and excess of speech a deadly poison. Material fire consumeth the body, whereas the fire of the tongue devoureth both heart and soul. The force of the former lasteth but for a time, whilst the effects of the latter endureth a century




Bah Quote n8601 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 265

Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 260 

   




O contending peoples and kindreds of the earth! Set your faces towards unity, and let the radiance of its light shine upon you. Gather ye together, and for the sake of God resolve to root out whatever is the source of contention amongst you. Then will the effulgence of the world's great Luminary envelop the whole earth, and its inhabitants become the citizens of one city, and the occupants of one and the same throne




Bah Quote n8599 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 217 

   




T here can be no doubt whatever that the peoples of the world, of whatever race or religion, derive their inspiration from one heavenly Source, and are the subjects of one God. The difference between the ordinances under which they abide should be attributed to the varying requirements and exigencies of the age in which they were revealed




Bah Quote n8598 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 217 

   




I t is incumbent upon them who are in authority to exercise moderation in all things. Whatsoever passeth beyond the limits of moderation will cease to exert a beneficial influence. Consider for instance such things as liberty, civilization and the like. However much men of understanding may favorably regard them, they will, if carried to excess, exercise a pernicious influence upon men




Bah Quote n8597 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 216 

   




T he Great Being saith: O ye children of men! The fundamental purpose animating the Faith of God and His Religion is to safeguard the interests and promote the unity of the human race, and to foster the spirit of love and fellowship amongst men. Suffer it not to become a source of dissension and discord, of hate and enmity




Bah Quote n8596 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 215 

   




T hose virtues that befit his dignity are forbearance, mercy, compassion and loving-kindness




Bah Quote n8595 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 215 

   




T he purpose underlying the revelation of every heavenly Book, nay, of every divinely-revealed verse, is to endue all men with righteousness and understanding, so that peace and tranquillity may be firmly established amongst them




Bah Quote n8594 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 206 

   




C onsort with all men, O people of Baha, in a spirit of friendliness and fellowship. If ye be aware of a certain truth, if ye possess a jewel, of which others are deprived, share it with them in a language of utmost kindliness and good-will. If it be accepted, if it fulfil its purpose, your object is attained. If any one should refuse it, leave him unto himself, and beseech God to guide him




Bah Quote n8593 | 
Gleanings From the Writings of Bahullh, p. 289 

   




T he Purpose of the one true God, exalted be His glory, in revealing Himself unto men is to lay bare those gems that lie hidden within the mine of their true and inmost selves. That the divers communions of the earth, and the manifold systems of religious belief, should never be allowed to foster the feelings of animosity among men, is, in this Day, of the essence of the Faith of God and His Religion. These principles and laws, these firmly established and mighty systems, have proceeded from one Source, and are the rays of one Light. That they differ one from another is to be attributed to the varying requirements of the ages in which they were promulgated.

Bah Quote n7533 | 
sec. LXVI 

   




H e Who is your Lord, the All-Merciful, cherisheth in His heart the desire of beholding the entire human race as one soul and one body.




Bah Quote n7529 | 
sec. CVII 

   




G ods purpose in sending His Prophets unto men is twofold. The first is to liberate the children of men from the darkness of ignorance, and guide them to the light of true understanding. The second is to ensure the peace and tranquility of mankind, and provide all the means by which they can be established.




Bah Quote n7527 | 
sec. XXXIV 

   




T he civilisation, so often vaunted by the learned exponents of arts and sciences, will, if allowed to overleap the bounds of moderation, bring great evil upon men.




Bah Quote n4738 | 

   




W hoso cleaveth to justice, can, under no circumstances, transgress the limits of moderation.




Bah Quote n4737 |

Y e dwell in one world, and have been created through the operation of one Will.




Bah Quote n4734 | 

   




B end your minds and wills to the education of the peoples and kindreds of the earth, that haply the dissensions that divide it may, through the power of the Most Great Name, be blotted out from its face, and all mankind become the upholders of one Order, and the inhabitants of one City.

B e ablaze as the fire, that ye may burn away the veils of heedlessness and set aglow, through the quickening energies of the love of God, the chilled and wayward heart.

W hoso followeth this counsel will break his chains asunder, will taste the abandonment of enraptured love, will attain unto his hearts desire, and will surrender his soul into the hands of his Beloved.




Bah Quote n4729 | 

   




B lessed are the learned that pride not themselves on their attainments; and well is it with the righteous that mock not the sinful, but rather conceal their misdeeds, so that their own shortcomings may remain veiled to mens eyes.

I f any differences arise amongst you, behold Me standing before your face, and overlook the faults of one another for My names sake and as a token of your love for My manifest and resplendent Cause.
