Blessed be the children

If you wish to become a saint, change your character into the character of children. Children have 5 qualities, and if adults had these same qualities, they would attain the rank of saints -
1. they do not worry about their daily bread,
2. when they fall sick, they do not complain night and day about their misfortune,
3. whatever food they have, they share,
4. when they fight or quarrel, they do not keep grudges in their hearts, but make up quickly,
5. the slightest threat makes them frightened and brings tears to their eyes.

- Imam al-Ghazzali
