O OFFSPRING OF DUST!
Be not content with the ease of a passing day, and deprive not thyself of everlasting rest.
Barter not the garden of eternal delight for the dust-heap of a mortal world.
Up from thy prison ascend unto the glorious meads above, and from thy mortal cage wing thy flight unto the paradise of the Placeless.
The Hidden Words of Bahá’u’lláh
