"O SON OF SPIRIT!
Noble have I created thee, yet thou hast abased thyself. Rise then unto that for which thou wast created. "
Bahá'u'lláh, The Hidden Words - Arabic (p.22)
"O MY SON!
The company of the ungodly increaseth sorrow, whilst fellowship wth the righteous cleanest the rust from off the heart. He that seeketh to commune with God, let him betake himself to the companionship of His loved ones; and he that desireth to hearken unto the word of God, let him give ear to the words of His chosen ones. "
