Rumi Quotes

Rumi was born in 1207 and died in 1273
Come, whoever you are! Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving. This is not a caravan of despair. It doesn’t matter if you’ve broken your vow a thousand times, still and yet again come!
As you live deeper in the heart, the mirror gets clearer and cleaner.
Silence is the language of God, 
all else is poor translation
The wound is the place where the Light enters you
You and I will be together
till the universe dissolves”
I love my friends neither with
my heart nor with my mind.
Just in case heart might stop, Mind can forget.
I love them with my soul.
Soul never stops or forgets.
Raise your words, not voice. It is rain which grows flowers, not thunder.
Don’t worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?
Although the road is never ending
, Take a step and keep walking,
 Do not look fearfully into the distance.
I belong to no religion. 
My religion is love.
Every heart is my temple
I will soothe you and heal you, 
I will bring you Roses. 
I too have been covered with thorns.
The alchemy of a changing life is the only truth.
Set your life on fire seek those who fan your flames
I closed my mouth and spoke to you in a thousand silent ways.
There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief, and unspeakable love.
You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens.
You were born with potential. 
You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. 
You were born with wings. 
You are not meant for crawling, so don’t. 
You have wings. 
Learn to use them and fly.
Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of your life.
Why are you so enchanted by this world, when a mine of gold lies within you?
Very little grows on jagged rock. Be ground. Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up where you are.
