A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on death, god, life, love, spirit, and water

Love is the Water of Life Everything other than love for the most beautiful God is agony of the spirit, though it be sugar- eating. What is agony of the spirit? To advance toward death without seizing hold of the Water of Life.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on dawn, people, secrets, and sleep

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don't go back to sleep. You must ask for what you really want. Don't go back to sleep. People are going back and forth across the door sill where two worlds touch. The door is round and open. Don't go back to sleep.
