“Be foolishly in love,
because love is all there is.
There is no way into presence
except through a love exchange.” -Rumi

“In love’s circle there’s
another kind of serenity;
in love’s wine, another
kind of hangover.
What you learned in
school is one thing,
love is something
entirely different.” -Rumi

از دسـت غیبـت تو شکایت نمی ‌کـنـم
‎تا نیسـت غیبـتی نـبود لذت حـضور

“I do not complain of your
absence, for there is no
delight in presence, were
it not for absence.” -Hafez

“the wind of your love has
been blowing in my head
all day long
I’ve felt restless and drunk
on your love all day
usually drunkenness leaves
after a few hours
but I’ve stayed drunk
all day long.” -Rumi

يا راوي حكي حكاية
مادابك تكون رواية
حكي لي على ناس الزمان
حكي لي على ألف ليلة وليلة
وعلى لنجة بنت الغولة
وعلى ولد السلطان

Oh storyteller tell us a story
Make it a tale
Tell me about the people of old
Tell me about 1001 Nights
And about Lunja, daughter of the Ghoul
And about the son of the Sultan.
