Jalaluddin Rumi Quotes

No mirror ever became iron again;

No bread ever became wheat;

No ripened grape ever became sour fruit.

Mature yourself and be secure from a change for the worse.

Become the light.

You suppose you are the trouble

But you are the cure

You suppose that you are the lock on the door

But you are the key that opens it

It's too bad that you want to be someone else

You don't see your own face, your own beauty

Yet, no face is more beautiful than yours.

You were born with potential.

You were born with goodness and trust.

You were born with ideals and dreams.

You were born with greatness.

You were born with wings.

You are not meant for crawling, so don't.

You have wings.

Learn to use them and fly.


"Burdens are the foundations of ease and bitter things the forerunners of pleasure."


"Be grateful for whomever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond."

Life Quotes By Rumi

You wander from room to room

Hunting for the diamond necklace

That is already around your neck!


"Everyone sees the unseen in proportion to the clarity of his heart, and that depends upon how much he has polished it.

Whoever has polished it more sees more - more unseen forms become manifest to him."


"Oh soul,

you worry too much.

You have seen your own strength.

You have seen your own beauty.

You have seen your golden wings.

Of anything less,

why do you worry?

You are in truth

the soul, of the soul, of the soul."


"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it."


"Let the beauty you love be what you do. There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth."


"What you seek is seeking you."

      Can anyone identify this sufi(?) quote: "The door is open, Now there is no escape." I'm not even sure if those are the correct words (notwithstanding translation). Thanks
