Came across this gem of a sentence today and thought I’d post it here.
Masjid dha de, mandir dha de, dha de jo kucch dainda. Par kisi da dil na dhain, Rab dilan vich rehnda ~ Bulleh Shah
Which translates to
You may raze a Mandir, raze a mosque, raze whatever you set your sight on…
But don’t you break somebody’s heart, for that is where God resides.
Such deep meaning in such a simple sentence.

Empress(Em): Are you sure that this is the deadliest poison available? Deadlier than even Arsenic?
Poison maker(Pm): Yes, it is. It is venom extracted from episeryals(?) from the North and Black Scorpions from the South. It is extremely potent.
Em: Is there anything more poisonous than this?
Pm: Yes. There is.
Em: What is it?
Pm: The Human Heart.
