His poems have been widely translated into many of the world's languages, and he has been described as the most popular poet and the best-selling poet in the United States.

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
Rumi

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”
Rumi

“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
Rumi
