Words of Imam Ali (AS) on the Heart
I am amazed at the heart of man: It possesses the substance of wisdom as well as the opposites contrary to it ... for if hope arises in it, it is brought low by covetousness: and if covetousness is aroused in it, greed destroys it. If despair possesses it, self-piety kills it: and if it is seized by anger, this is intensified by rage.
