Rumi quotes
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.”

As an admirer and ‘student’ of Rumi’s work, I am proud and humbled to be sharing his wisdom with my own photographs. (You are welcome to share them provided they are in their original and complete form)
