Do not let your love be obsessive and do not let your hatred be destructive. When you love, do not go to a level of obsession as a child does with the thing he loves, and when you hate, do not hate in such a way that you want your opponent to be destroyed and doomed.

‘Umar ibn al-Khattab (Radiallahu anhu)

[Narrated by ‘Abd ar-Razzaaq in al-Musannaf, 20269]

The lover who leans upon the beloved’s response, his love is like the flame that needs oil to live; but the lover who stands on his own feet, is like the lantern of the sun that burns without oil.
