Quotable Quotes - Part 2

These are a few quotes, mentioned down below, which make me weak on my knees every time I read them. Maybe its because I connect to them or because I am trying to. But the bottom line is that, it gives me a kind of a tingle and I love it. Just sharing them with you. :)

  • Jan zatan burdi wa darjani hunooz;Dard-ha daadi wa darmani hunooz.Aashkara seen-e am bashugaafti;Hamchunan dar seen-e pinhani hunooz.Ma za girya chun namak bagudakhtim;Tu bakhunda shukr afshani hunooz.
    You carried the soul from (my) body – and yet, You are still in the soul;You have given pains – and are still the remedy;Openly you split my chest –Yet, you are still hidden in my heart.You have destroyed the kingdom of my heart With the sword of coquetry, And are still a ruler in that place…. - Amir Khusrau
  • I have now understood that though it seems to men that they live by care for themselves, in truth it is love alone by which they live. He who has love, is in God, and God is in him, for God is love. - Leo Tolstoy
  • Progress lies not in enhancing what is, but in advancing toward what will be. - Gibran Kahlil Gibran
  • Khaana-e darvesh ra sham’ee ba az mehtaab neest. To light the beggar’s hut no candle is better than moonlight. - Amir Khusrau

More to be updated soon! :)
