Rumi Proverbs

 

This poetry. I never know what I’m going to say.
I don’t plan it.
When I’m outside the saying of it, I get very quiet and rarely speak at all.

Love is the ark appointed for the righteous,
Which annuls the danger and provides a way of escape.

Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment. Cleverness is mere opinion, bewilderment is intuition.

died as a mineral and became a plant, I died as plant and rose to animal, I died as animal and I was Man. Why should I fear? When was I less by dying?

A leaf trembles. I tremble in the windbeauty like silk from Turkestan.

Come even though you have broken your vows a thousand times, Come, and come yet again. Ours is not a caravan of despair.

Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.

This is how Hallaj said, I am God,
and told the truth!

The ruby and the sunrise are one.

Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.

I want a heart which is split, part by part, because of the pain of separation from God, so that I might explain my longing and complaint to it.
