Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī and more popularly simply as Rumi, was a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian and Sufi mystic.
His work transcends location, ethnicities, time, language and spirituality and has millions of followers the world over.
Some of his Love and Wisdom quotes:-
“Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.”
“Love is the bridge between you and everything.”
“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.”
“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.”
“Wherever you are, and whatever you do, be in love.”
“That which is false troubles the heart, but truth brings joyous tranquility.”
“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”
“Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder”
“What you seek is seeking you.”
