Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.

Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.

Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.

Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.

Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.

Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.

Everything that is made beautiful and fair and lovely is made for the eye of one who sees.

Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious.

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.

If you are irritated by every rub, how will your mirror be polished?

Ignore those that make you fearful and sad, that degrade you back towards disease and death.

In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.

Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.

Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love.

Love is the bridge between you and everything.

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.

My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.

Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.

Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.

Silence is the language of God, all else is poor translation.

Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.

The moment I first heard love I gave up my soul, my heart, and my eyes.

The wound is the place where the Light enters you.

There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen.

What you seek is seeking you.

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.

Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.

Wherever you are, and whatever you do, be in love.

Words are a pretext. It is the inner bond that draws one person to another, not words.

Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.

Yesterday is gone and its tale told. Today new seeds are growing.

You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.

You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?

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.

/ Rumi
