Giving Yourself a Rest

This may be one of the best quotes ever.

Imam ibn Ata’illah al-Iskandari, May Allah have mercy on his soul, said:

“Aspiration which rushes on ahead cannot break through the walls of destiny. Give yourself a rest from managing! When Someone Else is doing it for you, don’t you start doing it for yourself!”

~ Reference: Al-Hikam of ibn Ata’illah – The Wisdoms/Aphorisms
