Tablet of Medicine to a Physician Bahá'u'lláh says: — “Verily the most
necessary thing is contentment under all circumstances; by this one is
preserved from morbid conditions and lassitude. Yield not to grief and
sorrow: they cause the greatest misery. Jealousy consumeth the body and
anger doth burn the liver: avoid these two as you would a lion…”

‘Abdu’l-Bahá says:—“In this world we are influenced by two sentiments,
Joy and Pain. Joy gives us wings! In times of joy our strength is more
vital, our intellect keener, and our understanding less clouded. We seem
better able to cope with the world and to find our sphere of usefulness.
But when sadness visits us we become weak, our strength leaves us, our
comprehension is dim and our intelligence veiled. The actualities of
life seem to elude our grasp, the eyes of our spirits fail to discover
the sacred mysteries, and we become even as dead beings.
is no human being untouched by these two influences; but all the sorrow
and the grief that exist come from the world of matter --the spiritual
world bestows only the joy” Abdu'l-Baha, Paris Talks, p. 109
