“Behold how this drop of seawater
has taken so many forms and names;
it has existed as mist, cloud, rain, dew, and mud,
then plant, animal, and Perfect man;
and yet it was a drop of water
from which these things appeared.
Even so this universe of reason, soul, heavens, and bodies,
was but a drop of water in its beginning and ending.

...When a wave strikes it, the world vanishes;
and when the appointed time comes to heaven and stars,
their being is lost in not being.”
Mahmud Shabistari

“The philosopher with his two eyes sees double, so is unable to see the unity of the Truth.
ز وحدت ديدن حق شد معطل**دو چشم فلسفي چون بود احول”
Mahmud Shabistari, گلشن راز

“Penetrate the heart of just one drop of water, and you will be flooded by a hundred oceans.”
Mahmud Shabistari
