J. T. P. De Bruijn, Persian Sufi Poetry

 “Love is probably the most universal symbol for the relationship between the mystic and the Divine goal of his quest. Mystics in all cultures have adopted it as an essential part of the verbal means they use to express their desires and their experiences. In the language of love the most elevated thoughts about the relationship between man and his Creator can be put into words, in the most complete manner in which human speech is able to express that mystery for which there are no words.”
