Ear to Ear
by Omar Sarsour
"All humans are dead except those who seek knowledge. And all those who have knowledge are asleep, except those who do good by it. And those who do good deeds are deceived, except those who are sincere. And those who are sincere are always in a state of worry."

"Seek patience and passion in equal amounts. Patience alone will not build the temple. Passion alone will destroy its walls."

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."

"I beg you…to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without ever noticing it, live your way into the answer."
