Kamand Kojouri
“This is a day of celebration!
Today, we are divorcing the past
and marrying the present.
Dance,
and you will find God
in every room.
Today, we are divorcing resentment
and marrying forgiveness.
Sing,
and God will find you
in every tune.
Today, we are divorcing indifference
and marrying love.
Drink, and play that tambourine
against your thighs.
We have so much celebrating to do!”
Kamand Kojouri

“The lover drinks
and the cup-bearer pours.
The lover thinks
but the cup-bearer knows:
love begets love.
Since this wine is love,
then this cup is love,
then this tavern is love,
then this life is love.”
Kamand Kojouri

Michael Benzehabe, Persianality

“How freeing of a thought:

to leave no trace of one's existence.
How liberating indeed!”
