How much love inside a friend? Depends how much you give ‘em. ― Shel Silverstein


How many slams in an old screen door? Depends how loud you shut it. How many slices in a bread? Depends how thin you cut it. How much good inside a day? Depends how good you live ’em. How much love inside a friend? Depends how much you give ’em.

Bir kapı kaç kez çarpar ?Ne kadar sert kapattığına bakar.Bir ekmekte kaç dilim var ?Ne kadar ince kestiğine bakar.Bir günün içinde ne kadar iyi var ?Ne kadar iyi yaşadığına bakar.Bir dostun içinde ne kadar iyilik var ?Ne kadar verdiğine bakar.

― Shel Silverstein


Live amongst people in such a manner that if you die they weep over you and if you are alive they crave for your company.

İnsanlarla öyle geçinin ki öldünüz mü ağlasınlar size; sağ kaldınız mı sevgiyle çağırsınlar sizi.

― Hazrat Ali (Radhi Allahu Anhu)

    • Peace be upon you dear sister Indah , Thank you so much 🙂 Appreciate you stopping by and leaving your beautiful comment. Hope you have a great weekend. ❤

  2. Thank you so much Semra for sharing. The video was powerful, seeing the images of all the abandoned buildings, after all the work it would have taken people to build them.

    And how it relates to our friends. May we never abandon them. So important to nurture, care for and build them up. Wonderful quotes here, that last one is WOW, this is powerful. Thank you! 🙂

  6. Semra, wonderful message…I have always found when one receives a genuine, real, soulful touch of love…it spiritually blossoms and grows into a smiling hug which is sent back to the sender joyfully in return. The most simple gift, and most exquisite gift is the giving of that blessing freely not looking for anything in return, because it is given from a sincere and loving heart. God will always smile upon you because of the love songs in your words which you share with us all. May your weekend be amazingly blessed my dear sister!

    • Peace be upon you my dear Brother,

      Life is a precious and valuable gift of Allah swt..Thank you so much dear Brother, I always enjoy when you stop by and leaving such nice comments on my post….May Allah swt bless you with piety, forgiveness of sins, have mercy on you ❤

  7. Thanks for sharing this post Semra 🙂

  9. A friend…
    is someone who is there for you..
    when they’d rather
    be anywhere else…

  10. Beautiful words. Reminds me of an old song…
    “And in the end, the love you take
    Is equal to the love you make”

  11. I just so love this! Thank you, Semra!
