Rumi Quotes | Add your favorite Rumi Quote

My favorite quote by the Sufi poet Rumi:

"The mystic dances in the sun,

hearing music others don't.

'Insanity,' they say, those others.

If so, it's a very gentle,

nourishing sort."

~Rumi


Suffering is Optional

The wound is the place where the Light enters you. ~Rumi

Pain is our entry into the divine & suffering is optional :)

~Maryam

Desire to Be What You Are & Do What You Need To Do

"Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart" - jalal ad-din Rumi

The Illuminated Rumi

I have this book. It is beautifully illustrated with Rumi's poetry. It inspires me and I like to page through it often.

You Were Born With Wings - It's Time To Fly

You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?" Rumi Quote

Balance on the Wings of Love

God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches you by means of opposites, so that you will have two wings to fly - not one." - Rumi Quote

Open Your Heart & Touch The Sky

"Only from the heart can you touch the sky."

Rumi Quote

Divinely Drunk

The mystic, hearing the lovely music of all that is, is divinely drunk on the dance of life. How can that body be so vibrant, and happy, and joyful, when we are not? It must be insanity, to cause this exuberance. But when the sane become insane, it no longer matters what anyone thinks. All that matters is the music, as it plays. All that matters is the sun, as it shines, and the moon- as it illuminates the night, and fills the air with song. ~ darciefrench

      I think it goes... "We have a huge barrel of wine, but we have no cups. That's fine with us. In the morning we glow and in the evening we glow again. They say there's no future for us. That's fine with us."

      âThe minute I heard my first love story,

      I started looking for you, not knowing

      how blind that was.

      Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.

      They're in each other all along.â

      I love so many Rumi quotes. Here is one I really like: "Keep knocking and the joy inside will eventually open a window and look to see who's there." ~Rumi
