Whoever writes a book should be ready to accept criticism. Their fire eats their wood. Tell me who your friends are, and I’ll tell you who you are. When a camel falls to the ground, the knives are many. He who is watching the club does not understand the one who is beaten with it. You will discover your true friends in moments of crisis. Trust in Allah, but keep a tight leash on your camel. A book is like a garden carried in the pocket. When stomachs are operating eyes become blind. The tree is diseased by its own worms. Go beat your head on the wall. He is not the owner yet he makes noise on the roof.
