“The fact is this: Berkeley is pretty much unequivocally better than Stanford. That’s a bold statement, and we’re here to make it. If anything, Berkeley does not need to “Burst any Bubbles.” They’re living in the real world, not this palm tree-laden, Sunday brunch-studded adventure of ours. They (Berkeley students) sink or swim over there. If we (Stanford Students] don’t swim, we get to sit down with our friendly advisors from the UAC for milk, cookies and a pep talk at the CoHo.”

 

From the Stanford Daily.

Advice by Imam Shafi’i

Imam al-Shafi’i said:

faqihan wa sufiyyan fa kun laysa wahidan
fa inni wa haqqillahi iyyaka ansahu

(Be both) a faqih and a sufi: do not be only one of them,
Verily, by Allah’s truth, I am advising you sincerely.

[al-Shafi’i, Diwan, (Beirut and Damascus: Dar al-fikr) p. 47]
