List Your Favorite Rumi Quote

According to Wikipedia:
Mawlana Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi, also known as Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, but known to the English-speaking world simply as Rumi, was a 13th-century Persian poet, Sunni Islamic jurist, and theologian and mystic.

Rumi’s works are written in the New Persian language. Rumi’s importance is considered to transcend national and ethnic borders. His poems have been widely translated into many of the world’s languages and transposed into various formats.

Here is a beautifully done video combining the artwork of Toni Carmine Salerno (, music from and Rumi’s poetry.

Here are a few Rumi quotes that I like:

“God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches you by means of opposites, so that you will have two wings to fly – not one.”

“To praise is to praise how one surrenders to the emptiness.”

“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.”

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.”

“Beyond our ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”

  1. These are a few of mine:

    Let the beauty we love be what we do
    Open the window in the center of your chest and let spirit fly in and out
    Love is unconditional kindness

  2. I’m rather fond of this one!

    By day I praised you
    and never knew it.
    By night I stayed with you
    and never knew it.
    I always thought that
    I was me – but no,
    I was you
    and never knew it.


  3. “The minute I heard my first love story,
    I started looking for you, not knowing
    how blind that was.
    Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
    They’re in each other all along.”

    • Beautiful! Thank you.

      • My pleasure, the opportunity to share is an honor.
