Other Quotes by Rumi

Both light and shadow are the dance of love. Love has no cause, it is the astrolabe of god's secrets. Lover and loving are inseparable and timeless. Although i may try to describe love, when i experience it, i am speechless. Although i may try to write about love, i am rendered helpless. My pen breaks, and the paper slips away at the ineffable place where lover loving and loved are one. Every moment is made glorious by the light of love. Rumi
If my head holds one thought wise and clear, it's you. Poor as i am, what i hold dear is you. No matter how i see myself, i'm nothing ... Anything i am entirely is you! Rumi
Join the community of saints and know the delight of your own soul. Enter the ruins of your heart and learn the meaning of humility. Rumi
Know mankind well, don't degrade every man as evil, and don't exalt every man thinking he is good. He who cannot discover himself; cannot discover the world. Rumi
If your knowledge of fire has been turned to certainty by words alone, then seek to be cooked by the fire itself. Don't abide in borrowed certainty. There is no real certainty until you burn; if you wish for this, sit down in the fire. Rumi
Being desirable means being comfortable with your own ambiguity. The most ambiguous reality is that we are flesh and spirit at the same time. Within everyone there is light and shadow, good and evil, love and hate. In order to be truthful, you must embrace your total being. A person who exhibits both positive and negative qualities, strengths and weaknesses is not flawed, but complete. Rumi
You moan, "she left me." "he left me,"twenty more will come. Rumi
Greed makes man blind and foolish, and makes him an easy prey for death. Rumi
If you knew the secret of life, you too would choose no other companion but love. Rumi
Poverty is not for the sake of hardship. No, it is there because nothing exists but allah. Poverty unlocks the door - what a blessed key! Rumi
There is a community of the spirit. Join it, and feel the delight of walking in the noisy street and being the noise. Drink all your passion, and be a disgrace. Close both eyes to see with the other eye. Rumi
This mirror inside me shows. I cant say what, but i cant not know. I run from body. I run from spirit. I do not belong anywhere. Rumi
The way to heaven is within. Shake the wings of love-when love's wings have become strong, there is no need to trouble about a ladder. Rumi
An eye is meant to see things. The soul is here for its own joy. A head has one use: for loving a true love. Feet: to chase after. Love is for vanishing into the sky. The mind, for learning what men have done and tried to do. Mysteries are not to be solved: the eye goes blind when it only wants to see why. A lover is always accused of something. But when he finds his love, whatever was lost in the looking comes back completely changed. Rumi
We rarely hear the inward music, but we're all dancing to it nevertheless. Rumi
Whenever beauty looks, love is also there. Rumi
Rush out in the rain to be soaked with the sky. Rumi
Passion is present when a man can distinguish between the wine and the container. Two men see a loaf of bread. One hasn't eaten anything for ten days. The other has eaten five times a day, every day. He sees the shape of the loaf. The other man with his urgent need sees inside into the taste, and into the nourishment the bread could give. Be that hungry, to see within all beings the friend. Rumi
If you see two in one - i only see one in two Rumi
Your kindness cannot be said. You open doors in the sky. You ease the heart and make god's qualities visible. Rumi
Whoever is sitting with friends is in the midst of a flower garden, though he may be in the fire. Whoever sits with an enemy is in the fire, even though he is in the midst of a garden. Rumi
There is no worse sickness for the soul, o you who are proud, than this pretense of perfection. Rumi
Be full of sorrow, that you may become hill of joy; weep, that you may break into laughter. Rumi
God writes spiritual mysteries on our heart, where they wait silently for discovery. Rumi
