Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

James C. Dobson
“Failure to put the relationship on a slower timetable may result in an act that was never intended in the first place. Another important principle is to avoid the circumstances where compromise is likely. A girl who wants to preserve her virginity should not find herself in a house or dorm room alone with someone to whom she is attracted. Nor should she single-date with someone she has reason not to trust. A guy who wants to be moral should stay away from the girl he knows would go to bed with him. Remember the words of Solomon to his son, “Keep to a path far from her, do not go near the door of her house” (Proverbs 5:8). I know this advice sounds very narrow in a day when virginity is mocked and chastity is considered old-fashioned. But I don’t apologize for it. The Scriptures are eternal, and God’s standards of right and wrong do not change with the whims of culture. He will honor and help those who are trying to follow His commandments. In fact, the apostle Paul said, “He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear” (1Corinthians 10:13). Hold that promise and continue to use your head. You’ll be glad you did.”
James C. Dobson, Life on the Edge: The Next Generation's Guide to a Meaningful Future

“I left smiles on your wordless lips
The night roads- dismal and narrow,
dream’s path remains shadowy wide

Munia Khan
“You are a cool cemetery.
You have the sinner’s grave
You have the saint’s earth
You have all the beds
narrow as a knife;
as if a rally of tombstones to defend death.
But you can’t really postpone
the inauguration of my burial,
can you?

From the poem - Few Words to Cemetery”
Munia Khan, Beyond The Vernal Mind

Ehsan Sehgal
“Narrow-minded people do not let you take advantage; they have ill thoughts, they are cheaters, and liars, they are friends of evils. They do not want to see the peace, harmony, integration, tolerance, respect, honour and love towards all people. Keep distance from those; they are harmful, not only for you but also for the entire society. Say nothing to them, only pray for them.”
Ehsan Sehgal
