Rumi
“What you seek is seeking you.”
Rumi

Rumi
“Words are a pretext. It is the inner bond that draws one person to another, not words.”
Rumi

Rumi
“I know you're tired but come, this is the way.”
Rumi

Rumi
“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.”
Rumi

Rumi
“You try to be faithful
And sometimes you're cruel.
You are mine. Then, you leave.
Without you, I can't cope.

And when you take the lead,
I become your footstep.
Your absence leaves a void.
Without you, I can't cope.

You have disturbed my sleep,
You have wrecked my image.
You have set me apart.
Without you, I can't cope.”

Rumi
“Oh soul,
you worry too much.
You have seen your own strength.
You have seen your own beauty.
You have seen your golden wings.
Of anything less,
why do you worry?
You are in truth
the soul, of the soul, of the soul.”
Rumi

Rumi
“At night, I open the window
and ask the moon to come
and press its face against mine.
Breathe into me.
Close the language-door
and open the love-window.
The moon won't use the door,
only the window.”

carve a friend out of stone.
Realize that your inner sight is blind
and try to see a treasure in everyone.”

Weeping, then laughing.

The power of love came into me,
and I became fierce like a lion,
then tender like the evening star.”

“Do you know what you are?
You are a manuscript oƒ a divine letter.
You are a mirror reflecting a noble face.
This universe is not outside of you.
Look inside yourself;
everything that you want,
you are already that.”

as a citizen of the universe.
You think you belong

Out of this dust
you have created a personal image,
and have forgotten
about the essence of your true origin”

Oh moon, without me, do not shine;
Oh earth, without me, do not grow,
Oh time, without me, do not go.

“The world's flattery and hypocrisy is a sweet morsel:
eat less of it, for it is full of fire.
Its fire is hidden while its taste is manifest,
but its smoke becomes visible in the end. ”

wasn't it first merely a thought and a quest?”
Rumi

Rumi
“Love isn't the work of the tender and the gentle;
Love is the work of wrestlers.
The one who becomes a servant of lovers
is really a fortunate sovereign.
Don't ask anyone about Love; ask Love about Love.
Love is a cloud that scatters pearls.”
Rumi

Is worth my blood a hundred times.”

It may be that the ocean one,
the one we desire so to move into and become,
desires us out here on land a little longer,
going our sundry roads to the shore.”

Rumi
“در غم ما روزها بی گاه شد
روزها با سوزها همراه شد”
Rumi

Rumi
“The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was.”
Rumi, The Book of Love: Poems of Ecstasy and Longing

Rumi
“The ear participates, and helps arrange marriages;
the eye has already made love with what it sees.

The eye knows pleasure, delights in the body's shape:
the ear hears words that talk about all this.

When hearing takes place, character areas change;
but when you see, inner areas change.

If all you know about fire is what you have heard
see if the fire will agree to cook you!

Certain energies come only when you burn.
If you long for belief, sit down in the fire!

When the ear receives subtly; it turns into an eye.
But if words do not reach the ear in the chest, nothing happens.”
