“WISDOM QUOTES” by Persian Mystical Poet Hafez
- Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, ‘you owe me.’ Look what happens with a love like that! It lights up the whole sky.
- I wish I could show you…the astonishing light of your own being.
- When all your desires are distilled; You will cast just two votes: To love more, And be happy.
- What we speak becomes the house we live in.
- Carry your heart through this world like a life-giving sun
- For I have learned that every heart will get
What it prays for most.
- Now is the time to understand That all your ideas of right and wrong were just a child’s training wheels to be laid aside, when you finally live with veracity And love.
- We are People who need to love, because Love is the soul’s life, Love is simply creation’s greatest joy.
- For a day, just for one day, talk about that which disturbs no one and bring some peace into those beautiful eyes.
- We have come into this exquisite world to experience ever and ever more deeply our divine courage, freedom and light!
- Join me in the pure atmosphere of gratitude for life.
- Do not surrender your grief so quickly, let it cut more deeply. Let it ferment and season you as few human or divine ingredients can. Something is missing in my heart tonight that has made my eyes so soft and my voice so tender, and my need of God so absolutely clear.
- Let tenderness pour from your eyes, the way sun gazes warmly on earth.
- An awake heart is like a sky that pours light.
- What is this precious love and laughter budding in our hearts? It is the glorious sound of a soul waking up!
- God disguised as myriad things, and playing a game of tag has kissed you and said, “You’re it. I mean you’re really it. Now it does not matter what you believe or feel. For something wonderful, something major-league wonderful, is someday going to happen.”
- The sun will stand as your best man
When you have found the courage
To marry forgiveness, when you have found the courage
to marry Love.
