Pearl of Wisdom

in an intimate supplication said, ?O Allah, to You I complain of a soul that prompts to evil, that hastens towards wrongdoing and is fond of disobeying You... it has many faults, yet [entertains] high expectations; when evil strikes it, it worries, and when good comes its way, it withholds it. It inclines to amusement and frivolity, full of inattentiveness and forgetfulness; it hastens me to sin, and stalls me from repentance.'

Imam Ali ibn Hussain Zayn al-'Abidin [as]
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 94, p. 143

Sermon 227 About allegiance to Amir al-mu'minin for the Caliphate.

You drew out my hand towards you for allegiance but I held it back and you stretched it but I contracted it. Then you crowed over me as the thirsty camels crowd on the watering cisterns on their being taken there, so much so that shoes were torn, shoulder-cloths fell away and the weak got trampled, and the happiness of people on their allegiance to me was so manifested that small children felt joyful, the old staggered (up to me) for it, the sick too reached for it helter skelter and young girls ran for it without veils.
