Below are the few quotes by Rumi that will stop you for a moment and want you think all over once.
Get ready to let the horses of your mind run around and discover light within yourself.
You are not just a drop in the ocean. You are the mighty ocean in the drop.
Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.
You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?
Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.
If you are irritated by every rub, how will you be polished?
When will you begin that long journey into yourself?When you go through a hard period, when everything seemed to oppose you, when you feel you cannot bear one minuter, NEVER GIVE UP .Because it is the time and place that the course will divert.
You suppose you are the trouble, But you are the cure, you suppose you are the lock on the door but you are the key that opens it.
Do you know what you are? You are a manuscript of a divine letter. You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. This universe is not outside you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you are already that.
The quote below was Mahatma Gandhi’s favorite quote of Rumi.
We did not come to this world to destroy, divide or break. WE came to fix the broken, bring together the separated and serve as a bridge between the enemies.
