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 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.”
