A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on borrowing, certainty, knowledge, wishes, and words

If your knowledge of fire has been turned to certainty by words alone, then seek to be cooked by the fire itself. Don't abide in borrowed certainty. There is no real certainty until you burn; if you wish for this, sit down in the fire.

Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)
