Dschalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī

 Do you know what you are?

You are a manuscript oƒ a divine letter. You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. This universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you are already that.
Study me as much as you like, you will not know me, for I differ in a hundred ways from what you see me to be. Put yourself behind my eyes and see me as I see myself, for I have chosen to dwell in a place you cannot see.
Moonlight floods the whole sky from horizon to horizon;
How much it can fill your room depends on its windows.
