‘Hamsa’ Design Made of Affirmations and Quotations


Think Positive Apparel’s Hamsa Design is made entirely from affirmations and quotations relevant to the symbolism of the downward facing Hamsa: receiving protection and good luck.

Persistence through many cultures

These basic human wants can be found in all cultures throughout human history. While the Hamsa has roots in ancient Mesopotamian civilizations, the symbol has persisted and is currently found in Islamic (Hand of Fatima), Jewish (Hand of Miriam), and Christian (Hand of Mary) cultures of Northern Africa and Western Middle Eastern countries. Because of this diversity of usage, some look to the Hamsa symbol as a harbinger of peace.

Here are all* of the quotations used in this design:

“The power of intuitive understanding will protect you from harm until the end of your days.” ~ Lao Tzu

“The best lightning rod for your protection is your own spine.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“On life’s journey faith is nourishment, virtuous deeds are a shelter, wisdom is the light by day and right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life, nothing can destroy him.” ~ Buddha

“Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci

“If there’s a will, prosperity can’t be far behind.” ~ W. C. Fields

“Much effort, much prosperity.” ~ Euripides

“Peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity” ~ George Washington
