The thin eyelid prevents the eye from seeing the world and what is contained therein.
Then think of the result when the curtain of greed covers the sight of the heart.
~ Bahá’u’lláh, Tablet To The Persian Zoroastrian Believers
Although the Realm of Glory hath none of the vanities of the world, yet within the treasury of trust and resignation We have bequeathed to Our heirs an excellent and priceless Heritage.
Earthly treasures We have not bequeathed, nor have We added such cares as they entail.
By God! In earthly riches fear is hidden and peril is concealed. … Fleeting are the riches of the world; all that perisheth and changeth is not, and hath never been, worthy of attention, except to a recognized measure.
