Earthly Fame and Achievements

 Earthly fame and achievements
 are like dreams
  that come and go without leaving  footprints.
 No knowledge can be profitable
  without love and kindness of the mind.
 To feel inner personal dignity is the greatest bliss.

 The Earth is not our home.
  It is the place of travel for our spirits.
 All human wealth will pass away
  but pure beauty of the heart
  will last forever.

  Sheikh Igor ibn Abi Sufyan-Marinovsky
