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)

A Quote by Ken Wilber on language, mysticism, and paradox

A language possesses utility only insofar as it can construct conventional boundaries. A language of no boundaries is no language at all, and thus the mystic who tries to speak logically and formally of unity consciousness is doomed to sound very paradoxical or contradictory. The problem is that the structure of any language cannot grasp the nature of unity consciousness, any more than a fork could grasp the ocean.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on coelho, alchemist, enthusiasm, and language

There was a language in the world that everyone understood, a language the boy had used throughout the time that he was trying to improve things at the shop. It was the language of enthusiasm, of things accomplished with love and purpose, and as part of a search for something believed in and desired.
