Never give up!


Above – Video from Youtube is Paul Potts singing the italian version of Everybody hurts – “Ognuno Soffre”

REM – Everybody hurts  (taken from Lyrics007)

(Berry/Buck/Mills/Stipe)

When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,
When you’re sure you’ve had enough of this life, well hang on
Don’t let yourself go, ’cause everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes

Sometimes everything is wrong. Now it’s time to sing along
When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go, (hold on)
When you think you’ve had too much of this life, well hang on

‘Cause everybody hurts. Take comfort in your friends
Everybody hurts. Don’t throw your hand. Oh, no. Don’t throw your hand
If you feel like you’re alone, no, no, no, you are not alone

If you’re on your own in this life, the days and nights are long,
When you think you’ve had too much of this life to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes,
Everybody cries. And everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes. So, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Everybody hurts. You are not alone

Noble Quran:

76:22 “This is the reward for you, and your struggle (saʿyukum) is appreciated.”88:8 Faces on that day are joyful.
88:9 For their pursuit (lisaʿyihā )they are content.92:4 Your works (saʿyakum ) are various.
92:5 As for he who gives and is righteous.
92:6 Trusts in goodness.
92:7 We will make the easy path for him.53:38 None can carry the burdens of another.
53:39 The human being will have what he sought (saʿā).
53:40 His works (saʿyahu) will be shown.
53:41 Then he will be paid fully for such works.

21:94 So whosoever does good work (l-ṣāliḥāti) and he is an acknowledger, then his efforts (lisaʿyihi) will not be rejected and We will record it for him.

17:19 Whoever seeks the Hereafter and strives for it as it deserves (wasaʿā laha saʿyahā), and is an acknowledging person, then their effort is appreciated.

12:110 Then, when the messengers gave up (is’tayasa), and they thought that they have been denied, Our victory came to them. We then save whom We wish, and Our punishment cannot be swayed from the wicked people.

12:87 “My sons, go and inquire about Joseph and his brother, and do not give up (tāy’asū) from God’s Spirit. The only people who would give up from God’s Spirit are the ingrates of acknowledgment.”17

29:23 Those who rejected God’s signs and in meeting Him, they have forsaken (ya-isū) My mercy, and they will have a painful retribution.
29:24 But the only response from his people was their saying: “Kill him, or burn him.” But God saved him from the fire. In this are signs for a people who acknowledge.

And this always helps put things into perspective for me:
I like what it says at the top too: “Let us not be stopped by that which divides us but look for that which unites us” http://users.gazinter.net/melan/Warn/Warnenu.htm
