Rumi quotes page 2

It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away, so that when I've gone
and come back, I'll find it at home.
Rumi

Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy, absentminded. Someone sober will worry about things
going badly. Let the lover be.
Rumi

Silence is an ocean. Speech is a river.
Rumi

Love is a tree, and the lovers are its shade.
Rumi

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you
astray.
Rumi

Bitter is made sweet through love;
Copper becomes gold through love.
Through love dregs become clear;
Love heals all pain.
Through love the king becomes slave;
Love brings the dead to life.
Rumi

Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.
Rumi

You know what love is?
It is all kindness, generosity.
Disharmony prevails when
You confuse lust with love, while
The distance between the two
Is endless.
Rumi

Only from the heart can you touch the sky.
Rumi

Either give me more wine or leave me alone.
Rumi

Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle
of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free.
Rumi

Looking at my life
I see that only love
Has been my soul's companion
From deep inside
My soul cries out:
Do not wait, surrender
For the sake of love.
Rumi

My soul is from elsewhere, I'm sure of that, and I intend to end up there.
Rumi

What is justice? Giving water to trees. What is injustice? To give water to thorns. Justice
consists in bestowing bounty in its proper place, not on every root that will absorb water.
Rumi

Words are a pretext. It is the inner bond that draws one person to another, not words.
Rumi

This world is no match for your Love.
Being away from you
Is death aiming to take my soul away.
My heart, so precious,
I won't trade for a hundred thousand souls.
Your one smile takes it for free.
Rumi

Love comes with a knife, not some shy question, and not with fears for its reputation.
Rumi

And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth, "You owe me." Look what
happens with love like that. It lights up the sky.
Rumi

I was dead, then alive.
Weeping, then laughing.
The power of love came into me,
and I became fierce like a lion,
then tender like the evening star.
Rumi

Take someone who doesn't keep score, who's not looking to be richer, or afraid of losing, who
has not the slightest interest even in his own personality: he's free.
Rumi

I cannot sleep in your presence.
In your absence, tears prevent me.
You watch me my beloved
On each sleepless night and
Only you see the difference.
Rumi

Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.
Rumi

Do you want to enter paradise?
To walk the path of truth
You need the grace of God.
We all face death in the end.
But on the way, be careful
Never to hurt a human heart!
Rumi

The intelligent person sees with the heart the result from the beginning; the one lacking in
knowledge only discovers it at the end.
Rumi

Vain, boastful talk repels acts of kindness and tears the branch of mercy from the trunk of
the tree. Speak honestly or else be silent, and then behold grace and delight in it.
Rumi
