The Top Ten
Written in the Hindu scripture epic of Bhagavad Gita. The beauty of verse is that it encourages us to follow our own destiny through our hard work and decision-making even if it leads you to a materially substandard life. I am by no means an expert in Theology but all of these items are my interpretations.
This verse comes from the Talmud and is popularized in the movie "Schlinder's List" when one of the Jews Oskar Schlinder saved told him that he had saved the entire world by saving the lives of his factory workers. 12-year old me got his eyes teary upon seeing that scene.
Written in Peter 3:3-4. Visual appearance and beauty doesn't matter when you have a heart which is rotten to the core. But what matters is the beauty that comes within you in terms of personality that would charm a million more people than your looks ever will.
As written in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. Love isn't a sign of weakness by being meek as this verse has shown, and that there is virtue in being kind and patient to anybody we meet.
Written in Galatians 6:9. It is wasteful to throw your life out when there's seemingly no bright future ahead of you. Life is delicate and you can only experience it once. Make the best of it by reflecting at your flaws and redeeming yourself, then one day you may acquire its rewards.
Written in Al-Nur 24:22. We must be generous when it comes to helping the poor and needy even if it means sacrificing a bit of your wealth. Even then, you may be treated the same way if disaster ever struck in your life.
Written in Surah Luqman of the Qur'an 31:18 which taught us to be modest in our actions and mannerisms as there is a stronger being that is far greater than you and not to mention numerous people around the world that exceeds your capabilities.
Written in the Avesta, Yasna 48:5 in the Zoroastrian religion. I believe that the good deeds we've done as a collective society could catapult the world into a brighter future where our children wouldn't have to worry about Earthly pain or disasters such as famine, war, and etc.
Written in Genesis 1:1, and there is nothing more intriguing than the beginning of the universe and everything that we know of was like. It was a brave new world to explore that isn't yet stained with the horrors and atrocities that comes after it.
@2storm Damn, after a quick Google search and it seems like I made a mistake. Very well, I'll try to compensate it by adding another verse item.
Note to readers: Disregard the item. This verse should be "In the beginning, God created the Heavens and Earth" and not the text that I've written above. Though less dramatic, I want my lists to be 100% accurate.
Written in Leviticus 19:34 of the book of Torah. By following this example, we need to treat people of different racial and religious backgrounds equally as they are the creations of God as well. Which might sound weird coming from an atheist.
