كليلة و دمنة

by مجهول

قال علي بن الشاه الفارسي: كان السبب الذي من أجله وضع بيدبا الفيلسوف لدبشليم ملك الهند كتاب "كليلة ودمنة" أن الإسكندر ذا القرنين الرومي لمَّا فرغ من أمر الملوك الذين كانوا بناحية المغرب سار يريد ملوك المشرق من الفرس وغيرهم. فلم يزل يحارب مَنْ نازعه ويواقع مَنْ واقعه ويسالم مَنْ وادعه من ملوك الفرس وهم الطبقة الأولى حتى ظهر عليهم وقهر مَنْ ناواه، وتغلَّب على مَنْ حاربه فتفرَّقوا طرائق وتمزَّقوا حزائق؛ فتوجه بالجنود نحو بلاد الصين فبدأ في طريقه بملك الهند ليدعوه إلى طاعته والدخول في ملته وولايته. وكان على الهند في ذلك الزَّمان ملك ذو سطوة وبأس وقوة ومراس يقال له فور؛ فلمَّا بلغه إقبال ذي القرنين نحوه تأهب لمحاربته واستعدَّ لمجاذبته وضمَّ إليه أطرافه وجدَّ في التألب عليه وجمع له العدَّة في أسرع مدَّة، من الفيلة المعدَّة للحروب والسباع المضراة بالوثوب، مع الخيول المسرجة، والسيوف القواطع، والحراب اللوامع. فلمَّا قرب ذو القرنين من فور الهندي وبلغه ما قد أعدَّ له من الخيل التي كأنها قطع الليل، مما لم يلقه بمثله أحد من الملوك الذين كانوا في الأقاليم، تخوَّف ذو القرنين من تقصير يقع به إن عجَّل المبارزة. وكان ذو القرنين رجلاً ذا حيل ومكايد مع حسن تدبير وتجربة؛ فرأى إعمال الحيلة والتمهُّل، واحتفر خندقًا على عسكره وأقام بمكانه لاستنباط الحيلة والتدبير لأمره وكيف ينبغي له أن يقدم على الإيقاع به، فاستدعى المنجمين وأمرهم بالاختيار ليوم موافق تكون له فيه سعادة لمحاربة ملك الهند والنصرة عليه؛ فاشتغلوا بذلك. وكان ذو القرنين لا يمرُّ بمدينة إلاَّ أخذ الصُنَّاع المشهورين من صُنَّاعها بالحذق من كل صنف؛ فنتجت له همته ودلته فطنته أن يتقدَّم إلى الصناع الذين معه أن يصنعوا خيلاً من نحاس مجوفة عليها تماثيل من الرجال على بكر تجري، إذا دفعت مرَّت سراعًا، وأمر إذا فرغوا منها أن تُحْشَى أجوافها بالنفط والكبريت وتلبس وتقدَّم أمام الصف في القلب، ووقف ما يلتقي الجمعان تضرب فيها النيران، فإن الفيلة إذا لفت خراطيمها على الفرسان وهي حامية ولَّت هاربة، وأوعز إلى الصناع بالتشمير والانكماش والفراغ منها؛ فجدُّوا في ذلك وعجَّلوا وقرب أيضًا وقت اختيار المنجمين؛ فأعاد ذو القرنين رسله إلى فور بما يدعوه إليه من طاعته والإذعان لدولته؛ فأجاب جواب مُصرٍّعلى مخالفته مقيم على محاربته. فلمَّا رأى ذو القرنين عزيمته سار إليه بأهبته وقدَّم فور الفيلة أمامه، ودفعت الرجال تلك الخيل وتماثيل الفرسان، فأقبلت الفيلة نحوها ولفت خراطيمها عليها، فلمَّا أحسَّت بالحرارة ألقت مَنْ كان عليها وداستهم تحت أرجلها ومضت مهزومة هاربة لا تلوي على شيء ولا تمرُّ بأحد إلاَّ وطئته. وتقطع فور وجمعه وتبعهم أصحاب الإسكندر وأثخنوا فيهم الجراح، وصاح الإسكندر: يا ملك الهند ابرز إلينا وأبق على عدتك وعيالك ولا تحملهم على الفناء. فإنه ليس من المروءة أن يرمي الملك بعدته في المهالك المتلفة والمواضع المجحفة، بل يقيهم بماله ويدفع عنهم بنفسه. فابرز إلي ودع الجند فأينا قهر صاحبه فهو الأسعد. فلمَّا سمع فور من ذي القرنين ذلك الكلام دعته نفسه إلى ملاقاته؛ طمعًا فيه، وظن ذلك فرصة، فبرز إليه الإسكندر فتجاولا على ظهري فرسيهما ساعات من النهار ليس يلقى أحدهما من صاحبه فرصة ولم يزالا يتعاركان. فلمَّا أعيا الإسكندر أمره ولم يجد فرصة ولا حيلة أوقع ذو القرنين في عسكره صيحة عظيمة ارتجت لها الأرض والعساكر؛ فالتفت فور عندما سمع الزعقة وظنَّها مكيدة في عسكره، فعاجله ذو القرنين بضربة أمالته عن سرجه أتبعها بأخرى فوقع إلى الأرض. فلمَّا رأت الهنود ما نزل بهم وما صار إليه ملكهم حملواعلى الإسكندر فقاتلوه قتالاً أحبوا معه الموت، فوعدهم من نفسه الإحسان ومنحه الله أكتافهم فاستولى على بلادهم وملَّك عليهم رجلاً من ثقاته وأقام بالهند حتى استوسق  له ما أرد من أمرهم واتفاق كلمتهم، ثم انصرف عن الهند وخلَّف ذلك الرجل عليهم ومضى متوجهًا نحو ما قصد له.

الفوائد

by ابن القيم

أساس كل خير أن تعلم أن ما شاء الله كان وما لم يشأ لم يكن، فتتيقن حينئذ أن الحسنات من نعمه فتشكره عليها‏.‏ وتتضرع إليه ألا يقطعان عنك، وأن السيئات من خذلانه وعقوبته، فنبتهل إليه أن يحول بينك وبينها، ولا يكلك في فعل الحسنات وترك السيئات إلى نفسك‏.‏ وقد أجمع العارفون على أن كل خير فأصله بتوفيق الله للعبد‏.‏ وكل شر فأصله خذلانه لعبده‏.‏ وأجمعوا أن التوفيق ألا يكلك الله نفسك وأن الخذلان هو أن يخلي بينك وبين نفسك‏.‏ فإذا كان كل خير فأصله التوفيق وهو بيد العبد فمفتاحه الدعاء والافتقار وصدق اللجئ والرغبة والرهبة إليه، فمتى أعطي العبد هذا المفتاح فقد أراد أن يفتح له، ومتى أضله عن المفتاح بقي باب الخير مُرْتَجًا دونه‏.‏ قال أمير المؤمنين عمر بن الخطاب‏:‏ إني لا أحمل هم الإجابة ولكن هم الدعاء فإن الإجابة معه‏.‏ وعلى قدر نية العبد وهمته ومراده ورغبته في ذلك يكون توفيقه سبحانه وإعانته، فالمعونة من الله تنزل على العباد على قدرهم وثباتهم ورغبتهم ورهبتهم، والخذلان ينزل عليهم على حسب ذلك، فالله سبحانه أحكم الحاكمين وأعلم العالمين، يضع التوفيق في مواضعه اللائقة به والخذلان في مواضعه اللائقة به، وهو العليم الحكيم‏.‏ وما أتي من أتي إلا من قِبَل إضاعة الشكر وإهمال الافتقار والدعاء، ولا ظفر من ظفر بمشيئة الله وعونه إلا بقيامه بالشكر وصدق الافتقار والدعاء‏.‏ وملاك ذلك الصبر فإنه من الإيمان بمنزله الرأس من الجسد، فإذا قطع الرأس فلا بقاء لجسد‏.‏ ما ضرب عبد بعقوبة أعظم من قسوة القلب والبعد عن الله‏.‏ خلقت النار لإذابة القلوب القاسية‏.‏ أبعد القلوب من الله القلب القاسي‏.‏ إذا قسا القلب قحطت العين‏.‏ قسوة القلب من أربعة أشياء إذا جاوزت قدر الحاجة‏:‏ الأكل والنوم والكلام والمخاطبة‏.‏ كما أن البدن إذا مرض لم ينفع فيه الطعام والشراب‏.‏ فكذلك القلب إذا مرض بالشهوات لم تنجح فيه المواعظ‏.‏ من أراد صفاء قلبه فليؤثر الله على شهوته‏.‏ القلوب المتعلقة بالشهوات محجوبة عن الله بقدر تعلقها بها‏.‏ القلوب آنية الله في أرضه، فأحبها إليه أرقها وأصلبها وأصفاها‏.‏ شغلوا قلوبهم بالدنيا، ولو شغلوها بالله والدار الآخرة لجالت في معاني كلامه وآياته المشهودة ورجعت إلى أصحابها بغرائب الحكم وظرف الفوائد‏.‏ إذا غذي القلب بالتذكر وسقي بالتفكر ونقي من الدغل،‏ رأى العجائب وألهم الحكمة‏.‏ ليس كل من تحلى بالمعرفة والحكمة وانتحلها كان من أهلها، بل أهل المعرفة والحكمة الذين أحيوا قلوبهم بقتل الهوى‏.‏ وأما من قتل قلبه فأحيا الهوى، فالمعرفة والحكمة عارية على لسانه‏.‏ خراب القلب من الأمن والغفلة، وعمارته من الخشية والذكر‏.‏ إذا زهدت القلوب في موائد الدنيا قعدت على موائد الآخرة بين أهل تلك الدعوة، وإذا رضيت بموائد الدنيا فاتتها تلك الموائد‏.‏ الشوق إلى الله ولقائه نسيم يهب على القلب يروح عنه وهج الدنيا‏.‏ من وطن قلبه عند ربه سكن واستراح، ومن أرسله في الناس اضطرب واشتد به القلق‏.‏ لا تدخل محبة الله في قلب فيه حب الدنيا إلا كما يدخل الجمل في سم الإبرة‏.‏ إذا أحب الله عبدا اصطنعه لنفسه واجتباه لمحبته واستخلصه لعبادته فشغل همته بخدمته‏.‏

LAST SONGS - INTRODUCTION - WRITING amidst rather too much noise qand squalor to do justice- at all to the delicate rustic muse of Francis Ledwidge, I do not like to delay his book any longer, nor to fail in a promise long ago made to him to write this introduction. has e gone down in that vast maelstrom into which poets, do well to adventure and from which their country might perhaps be wise to withhold . them, but that is our Countrys affair. He has left behind him verses of great beauty, simple rural lyrics that may be something of an anodyne for this stricken age. If ever ai age needed beautiful little songs our age needs them and I know few songs more peaceful and happy, or better suited to soothe the scars on the mind of those who have looked on certain places, of which the prophecy in the gospels seems no more than an ominous hint when it speaks of the abomination of desolation. He told me once that it was on one particular occasion, hen walking at even- ing through the village of Slane in summer that he heard a blackbird sing. -The notes, he said, were very beautiful, and it is this blackbird that he tells of in three wonderful lines in his early poem called Behind the closed Eye, and it is this Song perhaps more than anything else that has been the inspiration of his brief life. Dynasties shook and the earth shook and the war, not yet described by any man, revelled and and wallowed in destruction around him and Francis Ledwidge stayed true to his inspiration, as his homeward songs will show. L I had hoped he would have seen the fame he has well deserved but it is hard for a poet to live tb see fame even in times of peace. In the days it is harder . than ever. DUNSANY.

Enforcing Home (The Survivalist Series #6)

Morgan has managed to get through a lot. Having made it back to his family and dealt with the issues of unscrupulous neighbors, he then had to cope with the presence of the federal government and their nefarious activities.

But just when Morgan thinks things are assuming some kind of normal, another surprise lands in his lap. He's been appointed Sheriff. Harkening back to a time when law enforcement was a local face in the community, Morgan is forced to step up and be that face, much to his chagrin. With the help of Thad, Danny and the rest of the crew, he accepts the law enforcement challenge, and tries to make a positive impact. But he's in for yet another surprise. New foes will arise; and old ones will return to conspire to destroy his efforts. Morgan's group will suffer loss, injury and constant assault. His new position has made him a target, as well as those he loves. The peace and tranquility that the group has fought so hard for, will continue to elude them.

The Appian Way: Ghost Road, Queen of Roads

by Robert A. Kaster

The Roman poet Statius called the via Appia “the Queen of Roads,” and for nearly a thousand years that description held true, as countless travelers trod its path from the center of Rome to the heel of Italy. Today, the road is all but gone, destroyed by time, neglect, and the incursions of modernity; to travel the Appian Way today is to be a seeker, and to walk in the footsteps of ghosts. Our guide to those ghosts—and the layers of history they represent—is Robert A. Kaster. In The Appian Way, he brings a lifetime of studying Roman literature and history to his adventures along the ancient highway. A footsore Roman soldier pushing the imperial power south; craftsmen and farmers bringing their goods to the towns that lined the road; pious pilgrims headed to Jerusalem, using stage-by-stage directions we can still follow—all come to life once more as Kaster walks (and drives—and suffers car trouble) on what’s left of the Appian Way. Other voices help him tell the story: Cicero, Goethe, Hawthorne, Dickens, James, and even Monty Python offer commentary, insight, and curmudgeonly grumbles, their voices blending like the ages of the road to create a telescopic, perhaps kaleidoscopic, view of present and past. To stand on the remnants of the Via Appia today is to stand in the pathway of history. With The Appian Way, Kaster invites us to close our eyes and walk with him back in time, to the campaigns of Garibaldi, the revolt of Spartacus, and the glory days of Imperial Rome. No traveler will want to miss this fascinating journey.

Brand Leadership

by David A. Aaker Erich Joachimsthaler

A dozen management fads have come and gone in the past decade, but brand equity, first explored by David Aaker in the late 1980s, has exploded in importance. Recognized byBrandweekas "the dean of the brand-equity movement," Aaker now prepares managers for the next level of the brand revolution -- brand leadership. For the first time, Aaker and coauthor Erich Joachimsthaler describe how the emerging paradigm of strategic brand leadership is replacing the classic, tactically oriented brand management system pioneered by Procter & Gamble. This fundamental shift involves nothing less than a revolution in organizational structure, systems, and culture -- as the authors demonstrate with hundreds of case studies from companies such as Polo Ralph Lauren, Virgin Airlines, Adidas, GE, Marriott, IBM, McDonald's, Maggi, and Swatch. This immensely readable book provides the brand management team with the capability to:Create and elaborate brand identities (what should the brand stand for)Use the brand relationship spectrum, a powerful tool to harness subbrands and endorsed brands to form brand architectures that create clarity, synergy and leveraged assetsIdentify the customer "sweet spot" and the driving idea that will move brand-building efforts beyond advertising to break out of the clutterUse the Internet and sponsorship to make brands resources work more effectivelyAddress the four imperatives of global brand managementLike David Aaker's two previous bestselling books,Brand Leadershipwill be essential reading for line executives and brand managers in market-driven firms worldwide.
