"There are some people, he (The Prophet S.A.W.) said, who go into religion so hard that they come out the other side, like an arrow passing right through its target." -Sheikh Abdul Hakim Murad
"Going too far is the same as falling too short" -Confucius
"We're living in an age of such extremes that the one who's not driven mad by it is not sane"- Sheikh Hamza Yusuf quoting a poem
