Eagle and Crow
An eagle can fly to heights that a crow can’t reach. There will always be some crows in your life pecking at you, trying to bait you into a fight. But the only way to argue with a crow is to come down to their level. If you find yourself trying to prove your point, upset and in conflict, that’s a sign you’ve come down too low. You need to go back up where you belong. You’re an eagle; quit wasting your time with crows.
People have enough pushing them down, pointing out their faults. Why don’t you be the one to push them up, to see the best in them, to help them get free?
If our happiness is based on everything going our way and everybody treating us right, we’re going to live frustrated. Before you leave the house, you need to make up your mind that you’re going to stay positive and enjoy the day, no matter what comes your way.
What you’re going through is not going to last forever. Don't judge the rest of your life by the season you’re in now. Have a new perspective. This too shall pass. When you come out, you’re not going to come out the same.

If you can’t celebrate other people’s success, you’ll never get to where they are.

When you’re being uncommon, taking the high road, don’t be distracted by naysayers and people that try to discredit you. God knows how to bring justice. They’re making fun of you now, but they may be working for you later.

Parwaz Hai Dono Ki Issi Aik Faza Mein
Kargas Ka Jahan Aur Hai, Shaheen Ka Jahan Aur
The vulture and the eagle soar; In the same air, but in worlds apart.


Hamam-o-Kabootar Ka Bhooka Nahin Main
Ke Hai Zindagi Baaz Ki Zahidana

I am not hungry for pigeon or dove; For renunciation (rejection) is the mark of an eagle’s life.

Prindon Ki Dunya Ka Dervaish Hun Mein
Ke Shaheen Banata Nahin Ashiyana
I am the dervish of the kingdom of birds; The eagle does not make nests

Auqabi Rooh Jab Baidar Hoti Hai Jawanon Mein
Nazar Ati Hai Iss Ko Apni Manzil Asmanon Mein
When an eagle’s spirit awakens in youthful hearts,
It sees its luminous goal beyond the starry heavens.

Nahin Tera Nasheman Qasr-e-Sultani Ke Gunbad Par
Tu Shaheen Hai, Basera Kar Paharon Ki Chatanon Mein

Thy abode is not on the dome of a royal palace; 
You are an eagle and should live on the rocks of mountains.

Huwi Na Zagh Mein Paida Buland Parwazi
Kharab Kar Gyi Shaheen Bache Ko Sohbat-e-Zagh
Earth‐bound crows cannot aspire to the eagle’s flights,
But they corrupt the eagle’s lofty, noble habits.

Tu Shaheen Hai, Parwaz Hai Kaam Tera

Tere Samne Asman Aur Bhi Hain
You are an eagle, flight is your vocation:
You have other skies stretching out before you.

Poisoned Society

Allama Iqbal replies to his father, that my people are so emotional that they don't care whether it is life water or lethal poison.
