Ahmed Shah Durrani
I forget the throne of Delhi when I remember the mountain tops of my Afghan land. If I must choose between the world and you, I shall not hesitate to claim your barren deserts as my own.
Durrani quotes
I come to you and my heart finds rest.
Suddenly the breeze of victory began to blow,
and as willed by Allah,
the wretched Deccanis (Maratha's) suffered utter defeat.

Durrani Ahmed Shah quotes
I capture every province with the aid of God; It is with his help that I go everywhere without failure. Yet I, Ahmad, consider the world worthless and unimportant. I shall leave the world behind and go the next, armed only with my faith.
Durrani Ahmed Shah
Away from you, grief clings to my heart like a snake.
