Dr.Allama Muhammad Iqbal Quotes

“What avails love when life is so ephemeral?
What avaiIs a mortal’s love for the immortal?Love that is snuffed out by death’s passing blast
Love without the pain, the passion that consumes?

A flickering spark I am, aglow for a fleeting glance
Flow vain for a flickering spark to chase an eternal flame!

Grant me the bliss of eternal life, O Lord,
And mine will be the ecstasy of eternal love.

Give me the pleasure of an everlasting pain
An agony that lacerates my soul for ever.”

Given character and healthy imagination, it is possible to reconstruct this world of sin and misery into a veritable paradise.

Nations are born in the hearts of poets, they prosper and die in the hands of politicians.

I tell you the sign of a believer; When Death comes, there is a smile on his lips.

Words, without power, is mere philosophy.

Why should I ask the wise men: Whence is my beginning? I am busy with the thought: Where will be my end?

People who have no hold over their process of thinking are likely to be ruined by liberty of thought. If thought is immature, liberty of thought becomes a method of converting men into animals.

Vision without power does bring moral elevation but cannot give a lasting culture.

Become dust – and they will throw thee in the air; Become stone – and they will throw thee on glass.

Though the terror of the sea gives to none security, in the secret of the shell. Self preserving we may dwell.
