Attitude… August 19, 2006

It is the “advance man” of our true selves.
Its roots are inward but its fruit is outward.
It is our best friend or our worst enemy.
It is more honest and more consistent than our words.
It is an outward look based on past experiences.
It is a thing which draws people to us or repels them.
It is never content until it is expressed.
It is the librarian of our past.
It is the speaker of our present.
It is the prophet of our future.

"O people! You have selected me as your leader although I am not the best among you. If I do right support me; if I am wrong set me right. Obey me as I obey God and His Messenger. If I go against the injunction of God and His Prophet, then no obedience is due from you."

The first Caliph Abu Bakr in his famous inaugural speech

Our remedies oft in ourselves do lie
Which we ascribe to heaven; the fated sky
Gives us free scope; and only backward pulls
Our slow designs when we ourselves are dull.

How much I could do if I only tried.

Turning weaknesses into strengths June 1, 2006

The tree that never had to fight

For sun and sky and air and light,

But stood out in the open rain

And always got its share and rain,

Never became a forest king

But lived and died a scrubby thing…

Good timber does not grow with ease,

The stronger wind, the stronger trees.
