                               Mowlana Jalaluddin Rumi Quotes

  • In the waters of purity, I melted like salt
    Neither blasphemy, nor faith, nor conviction, nor doubt remained.
    In the center of my heart a star has appeared
    And all the seven heavens have become lost in it.
     
  • When you do things from your soul, you feel a river
    moving in you, a joy.
     
  • Without cause God gave us Being;
    without cause, give it back again.
     
  • How long will you think about this painful life?
    How long will you think about this harmful world?
    The only thing it can take from you is your body.
    Don't say all this rubbish and stop thinking.
     
  • There is a life-force within your soul, seek that life.
    There is a gem in the mountain of your body, seek that mine.
    O traveler, if you are in search of That
    Don't look outside, look inside yourself and seek That.
     
  • Hundreds have looked for you and died searching
    in this garden where you hide behind the scenes.
    But this pain is not for those who come as lovers.
    You are easy to find here. You are in the breeze and in this river of wine.
     
  • There is a way between voice and presence
    where information flows.
    In disciplined silence it opens.
    With wandering talk it closes.
     
  • When your chest is free of your limiting ego,
    Then you will see the ageless Beloved.
    You can not see yourself without a mirror;
    Look at the Beloved, He is the brightest mirror.
     
  • In love, aside from sipping the wine of timelessness,
    nothing else exists.
    There is no reason for living except for giving one's life.
    I said, "First I know you, then I die."
    He said, "For the one who knows Me, there is no dying."
     
  • Come, Come again !
    Whatever you are...
    Whether you are infidel,
    idolater or fireworshipper.
    Whether you have broken your vows
    of repentance a hundred times
    This is not the gate of despair,
    This is the gate of hope.
    Come, come again...
