Rumi quotes page 3
There is no salvation for the soul
But to fall in Love.
It has to creep and crawl
Among the Lovers first.
Only Lovers can escape
From these two worlds.
This was written in creation.
Only from the Heart
Can you reach the sky.
The rose of Glory
Can only be raised in the Heart.
It is love that brings happiness to people.
It is love that gives joy to happiness.
My mother didn't give birth to me, that love did.
A hundred blessings and praises to that love.
Past and future veil God from our sight; burn up both of them with fire.
Whoever gives reverence receives reverence.
What you seek is seeking you.
Wherever you stand, be the soul of that place.
Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.
