Rumi,the 13th century Persion poet , has been called the greatest mystical poet of all time.He has composed over 70,000,powerful and beautiful verses of poetry so driven by his passion and exquisitely put together in simple words.

Some of my personal favourite quotes of Rumi are given below:

The wound is the place where the Light enters you.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.

Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.

Only from the heart can you touch the sky.

Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.

Be melting snow. Wash yourself of yourself.

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.

As you start to walk out on the way, the way appears.

Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.

The cure for pain is in the pain.

Here are my favorite Rumi quotes:

• In each moment the fire rages, it will burn away a hundred veils. And carry you a thousand steps toward your goal.

Have you ever felt this optimistic?

• What is planted in each person’s soul will sprout.

Yes, Rumi was a philosopher in his own right. Read this philosophy of him,

• Achieve some perfection yourself, so that you may not fall into sorrow by seeing the perfection in others.

And he was a teacher too, teaching us the way of love

• Close your eyes, fall in love, stay there.

Rumi taught us self-love too.

• The universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you already are.

And how he embraces all the art forms!

• Dance until you shatter yourself.

I had never known a more beautiful version of “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder”.

• To praise the sun is to praise your own eyes.

He tells us to embrace our individuality.

• Don’t you know yet? It is your light that lights the worlds.

And pains too.

• These pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them.

Tell me which one touched your heart.
