Even HEAVEN would become hell if you were alone in it — or away from a loved one. And even if you were with your loved one but in hell, eventually you would cry to have you and your loved one together in heaven. So to create your own heaven on earth, make sure you and your loved one are in a place you both LOVE, because what could be heaven for one could be hell for the other. If that is the case, there will be no peace…even if one of you feels like you have found heaven. It takes the happiness of two birds in a nest to create HEAVEN. Otherwise, “HEAVEN” will become hell.– Suzy Kassem
I have two friends who aren’t what they seem on the surface. One speaks nicely and has good manners, but has a very ugly heart. And the other one, speaks ugly and has bad manners, but has a very beautiful heart. People that accept others only for what they see on the surface are fools. Substance is found inside a person, where their true worth is measured by their heart. My friend who speaks ugly — takes good care of her parents, makes many sacrifices, and is very tender and compassionate towards the sick, poor, animals, and the voiceless. The one who speaks beautifully — treats their parents badly, is very arrogant, selfish, and materialistic. Never judge someone by a picture, their words, or presentation. An image can be bought, substance cannot. — Suzy Kassem
In today’s world, friends are MORE flawed than ever before. Yet to have friends, you have to be open to truly treating them as family. The same way you fight with a parent or sibling and make peace with them the next day, month, or year…you have to accept your friends the exact same way. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself without friends. Everyone is flawed, so don’t ever expect your friends to be flawless. Only the Creator is flawless. Jealously, rivalry, hypocrisy, frugality, and envy are natural feelings found in siblings — so don’t be shocked to see the same traits in your friends. Familiarity DOES breed contempt. Sometimes when people get close to you and discover how much alike you really are, they turn bitter knowing you have something more to offer than them, or opportunities not offered to them. Yet deep down, a lot of those people that hurt you the most could be the first to die for you. — Suzy Kassem
Artists are the flowers of our world. The best ones are those that can stand out from the crowd and create their own concrete garden — to move us, inspire us, and makes us think hard. A flower with no smell to it is just something to look at. A flower that emits a beautiful fragrance is the one we want in our homes and on our walls. Your mission as an artist, is to become the best-smelling flower in the world, so that when the day finally comes when you are plucked from the ground, the world will cry for the loss of your mind-stimulating fragrance. Be different. Be original. Nobody will remember a specific flower in garden loaded with thousands of the same flower, BUT they will remember the one that managed to change its color to purple.– Suzy Kassem
When a cop wants to bust a drug dealer, the cop will present himself as a drug user to put the dealer in jail. When a cop wants to bust a prostitute, he will disguise himself as a pervert in a car so he can put that hooker in jail. When a devil wants to promote his ideals to the people, he will dress up like a lamb to disguise he is a wolf — and he will talk like a lamb, and act in front of the people as a lamb, but will always remain a devil when he takes off his costume and congregates with his demons. This is why ancient scriptures and our holy books have warned us since the beginning of time to always watch the actions of others. Those who say they are good, will prove their goodness through their actions — not words. Eventually a cop reveals himself when he handcuffs a dealer or hooker — regardless of what he told them before. And eventually a devil will reveal himself to those paying close attention by the actions he makes, not his words. You cannot speak peace and kill at the same time. You cannot say you serve the people, but screw them at the same time. You cannot say you are a man of God, but promote everything that goes against God and his ideology of love and compassion. We were made to LOVE — not just each other — but nature too. Basic moral values are fading from society. If you want your children to copy the rats around you and the trash on our TV screens, do nothing. But if you want GOODNESS to exist in our future, teach love and make sure truth and love exist in your every word and action. Your actions are what get recorded, not your words or intentions. — Suzy Kassem
Having unconditional love without a passion/dream is a glass half full. Having true love with a passion/dream is a glass with an open bottom. The trick is, to focus on achieving your passion/dream without looking for love. Love will come to you when you are ready, in the thickness of pursuing your dream — when you aren’t looking.
