— Mikhail Naimy, The Book of Mirdad
Blessed is the eye which is permeated with love. Without love it is like a pebble or stone. Like a gardener without a garden, the eye remains empty without love. What is the state of a human being without love? He is like one who is denied all delicacies, and whose mouth is filled only with dust. Without love one does not find the flow of the Sound Current.
— Sant Dariya Sahib of Bihar
