Rumi quotesRumi

The garden of love is green without limit and yields many fruits other than sorrow or joy. Love is beyond either condition: without spring, without autumn, it is always fresh.

When someone beats a rug, the blows are not against the rug, but against the dust in it.


Sunlight fell upon the wall; the wall received a borrowed splendor. Why set your heart on a piece of earth, O simple one? Seek out the source which shines forever.

That which God said to the rose, and caused it to laugh in full-blown beauty, He said to my heart, and made it a hundred times more beautiful.

It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away, so that when I've gone and come back, I'll find it at home.
The way the Beloved can fit in my heart, two thousand lives could fit in this body of mine. One kernel could contain a thousand bushels, and a hundred worlds pass through the eye of the needle.

What shall I say, O Muslims, I know not myself, I am neither a Christian, nor a Jew, nor a Zoroastrian, nor a Muslim.

Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and hurt disappear. Someone fills the cup in front of us: We taste only sacredness.

The gifts of lovers to one another are, in respect to love, nothing but forms; yet, they testify to invisible love.
That which is false troubles the heart, but truth brings joyous tranquillity.
If you find the mirror of the heart dull, the rust has not been cleared from its face.

There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the ground; there are a thousand ways to go home again.

You've come to know the fortunate and the inauspicious stars, but you don't know whether you yourself are fortunate or lucky.

Plant the love of the holy ones within your spirit; don't give your heart to anything, but the love of those whose hearts are glad.

Water, stories, the body, all the things we do, are mediums that hid and show what's hidden.

I have seen the king with a face of Glory, He who is the eye and the sun of heaven, He who is the companion and healer of all beings, He who is the soul and the universe that births souls.
 
“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.”

“When I am with you, we stay up all night.
When you're not here, I can't go to sleep.
Praise God for those two insomnias!
And the difference between them.”


“Knock, And He'll open the door
Vanish, And He'll make you shine like the sun
Fall, And He'll raise you to the heavens
Become nothing, And He'll turn you into everything.”

“I want to see you.
Know your voice.
Recognize you when you
first come 'round the corner.
Sense your scent when I come 
into a room you've just left.
Know the lift of your heel,
the glide of your foot.
Become familiar with the way 
you purse your lips
then let them part, 
just the slightest bit,
when I lean in to your space
and kiss you.
I want to know the joy 
of how you whisper 
"more”
