Guru Angad Dev


  • Die before the one whom you love; to live after he dies is to live a worthless life in this world.
    • Guru Granth Sahib p. 83
  • Chop off that head which does not bow to the Lord, O Nanak, that human body, in which there is no pain of separation from the Lord-take that body and burn it.
    • Guru Granth Sahib p. 89
  • The mouth is not satisfied by speaking, and the ears are not satisfied by hearing. The eyes are not satisfied by seeing-each organ seeks out one sensory quality. The hunger of the hungry is not appeased; by mere words, hunger is not relieved. O Nanak, hunger is relieved only when one utters the Glorious Praises of the Praiseworthy Lord.
    • Guru Granth Sahib p. 147
