A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on language, moon, love, and kisses

There is some kiss we want with our whole lives,
the touch of Spirit on the body.

Seawater begs the pearl to break its shell.
And the lily, how passionately it needs some wild Darling!

At night, I open the window and ask the moon to come
and press its face against mine. Breathe into me.

Close the language-door, and open the love-window
The moon won't use the door, only the window.

Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)
