Heart Vs Mountain
Ba ehsan asUda kardan dile; Beh az alf raka't ba har manzile. {S.) Dil ba dast awar k haj e Akbar ast; Az hazaran kaba yak dil behter ast; Dil guzar-gahe Jalile Akbar ast, Ka’ba bun-gahe Khalile azir ast
(To bring joy to one heart by loving help, Is better than a thousand litanies. To reach and clasp (embrace) a human heart with love; This is the Greater Pilgrimage ; the other, Within the former lives the Life of God, The other’s the dead work of Azir's hands.)
Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘Moving mountains is easier than bringing hostile hearts together.’
'Those who restrain themselves from worldly pleasures are such that their hearts are weeping though outwardly they may laugh, they experience great sorrow though they display joy, and they are filled with self-contempt though they rejoice at all that they have been bestowed.’
'He who renounces this worldly life, neither concerning himself with its baseness nor vying for its glory, Allah rewards him with a gift that is unobtainable through any of His creatures, grants him knowledge without the need for learning, secures wisdom in his heart and makes it flow upon his tongue.’ 
The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'Abstaining from the vain pleasures of this world puts the heart and the body at rest, whereas longing for them exhausts the heart and the body.’
Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, ‘The speed of amity between the hearts of pious people when they meet – even if they do not show their mutual love on their tongues – is like the speed of the rain water when it mixes with the water of rivers. And the distance between the hearts of the wicked when they meet – even if they make a show of love on their tongues – is like the distance between beasts that cannot have mutual affection no matter how long they eat from the same trough.’
‘Anger is such that it destroys the heart of even the wise man.’
Imam al-Baqir (AS) said, ‘He who suppresses his anger despite being able to vent it, Allah will fill his heart with peace and security on the Day of Resurrection.’
