Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes.
Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.
Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and twice as beautiful as you'd ever imagined. Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself
Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.
Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.
Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
Listen with ears of tolerance! See through the eyes of compassion! Speak with the language of love
If you eyes are opened, you'll see the things worth seeing.
How sad, a heart that does not know how to love, that does not know what it is to be drunk with love. If you are not in love, how can you enjoy the blinding light of the sun, the soft light of the moon?
As far as you can avoid it, do not give grief to anyone.
Never inflict your rage on another. If you hope for eternal rest, feel the pain yourself; but don’t hurt others.
I LOVE my friends neither with my heart nor with my mind.
Just in case... HEART might stop. MIND can forget. I Love them with my Soul. SOUL never stops or forgets.
Drink wine. This is life eternal. This is all that youth will give you. It is the season for wine, roses and drunken friends. Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.
Give me a flagon of red wine, a book of verses, a loaf of bread, and a little idleness. If with such store I might sit by thy dear side in some lonely place, I should deem myself happier than a king in his kingdom.
Find the sweetness in your own heart, then you may find the sweetness in every heart.
Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.
It’s too bad if a heart lacks fire, and is deprived of the light of a heart ablaze. The day on which you are without passionate love is the most wasted day of your life.
A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and thou.
When the world pushes you to your knees, you're in the perfect position to pray.
My friend, let's not think of tomorrow, but let's enjoy this fleeting moment of life.
The value of three things is justly appreciated by all classes of men: youth, by the old; health, by the diseased; and wealth, by the needy.
Wherever you are, whatever you do, be in love.
Your heart knows the way. Run in that direction.
Last night I begged the Wise One to tell me the secret of the world.
Gently, gently, he whispered, "Be quiet, the secret cannot be spoken, It is wrapped in silence."
To be free of belief and unbelief is my religion.
Do you know what you are? You are a manuscript oƒ a divine letter.
You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. This universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you are already that.
Don't get lost in your pain, know that one day your pain will become your cure.
Don't sit and wait. Get out there, feel life. Touch the sun, and immerse in the sea.
Do not look back, No one knows how the world ever began.
Do not fear the future, Nothing lasts forever. If you dwell on the past or future, You will miss the moment.
Just as the water reflects the stars and the moon, the body reflects the mind and soul.
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don't go back to sleep.
You don't live on the earth, you are passing through it.
In every religion there is love, yet love has no religion.
You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.
You've seen the world, and all you've seen is nothing;
and everything, as well, that you have said and heard is nothing. You've sprinted everywhere between here and the horizon; it is nothing. And all the possessions you've treasured up at home are nothing.
Our greatest strength lies in the gentleness and tenderness of our heart.
If we are irritated, by every rub, how will we be polished?
You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don't. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly.
Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.
If you are looking for a friend who is faultless, you will be friendless.
Be grateful for your life, every detail of it, and your face will come to shine like a sun, and everyone who sees it will be made glad and peaceful.
Be like the sun for grace and mercy. Be like the night to cover others' faults. Be like running water for generosity. Be like death for rage and anger. Be like the Earth for modesty. Appear as you are. Be as you appear.
Protect yourself......from your own thoughts.
Let yourself be drawn by the strange pull of what you love. It will not lead you astray.
All religions, all this singing, one song.
The differences are just illusion and vanity. The sun’s light looks a little different on this wall than it does on that wall, and a lot different on this other one, but it’s still one light.
We may know who we are or we may not.
We may be Muslims, Jews or Christians but until our hearts become the mould for every heart we will see only our differences.
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.
I want your sun to reach my raindrops, so your heat can raise my soul upward like a cloud.
If I don't enjoy myself now, when shall I?
Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again, come, come.
Try no to resist the changes that come in your way. Instead, let life live through you. And do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come? How Rumi Can Change Your Life?
This is Now. Now is, all there is. Don't wait for Then; strike the spark, light the fire.
Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder.
Help someone's soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.
Grief can be the garden of compassion.
If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life's search for love and wisdom.
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
To love is human. To feel pain is human. Yet to still love despite the pain is pure angel.
There was a door to which I found no key: There was the veil through which I might not see.
There is a voice that doesn't use words. Listen.
When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain. From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.
When you are so full of sorrow that you can't walk, can't cry anymore, think about the green foliage that sparkles after the rain. When the daylight exhausts you, when you hope a final night will cover the world, think about the awakening of a young child.
