In this dictionary entry, there is also the nuance of forcing somebody to do something they do not really want to do.

Heaven expelled them because their presence would mar its beauty, so did the dangeons of hell, for fear these sinners

would rejoice triumphantly at their expense.

If you mean "حرية" then it's freedom, if you mean "حورية" then it's a mermaid. it depends on the way you spell it.

Adages are authentic records of a nation's cultural heritage. In some developing countries, a vast amount of proverbs are not yet archived. They pertain to an oral savoir faire that is handed down from one generation to another. Colossal work is yet to be done to collect this valuable cultural asset and to protect it from dilapidation.

May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that you may live deep within your heart. May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom, and peace. May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy. And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.

Busy old fool, unruly sun,
Why dost thou thus,
Through windows, and through curtains call on us?
Must to thy motions lovers' seasons run?
Saucy pedantic wretch, go chide
Late school boys and sour prentices,
Go tell court huntsmen that the king will ride,
Call country ants to harvest offices,
Love, all alike, no season knows nor clime,
Nor hours, days, months, which are the rags of time.
It’s more sensational to be madly in love than to be the subdued slave of time.

Can we speak of gauzy eyes, to mean eyes that are limpid and reflecting the truly felt emotions?
