Life's Not About Fighting

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Speaking Tree | November 17, 2013

If you happen to be in an open field when it starts to rain, you hasten to find shelter, This is not cowardice, this is realism.

When some difficulty arises between man and nature, the solution to the problem lies only in acknowledgment, not in confrontation.
