Publisher's Summary

Rumi has been described as "the most popular poet" in the United States.

Rumi's popularity has gone beyond national and ethnic borders. He is considered to be one of the greatest classical poets, by the speakers of Persian language in Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan. His poetry is still read worldwide today and has been translated into a wide variety of languages including Turkish, Persian, Russian, Asian, English, and Spanish languages. Likely due to the pure universal natural themes in his poetry, Rumi's works are simplistic and beautiful at the same time.

A collection of 101 quotes of wisdom from Rumi on life, love, and happiness.

"Anyone who genuinely and consistently with both hands looks for something, will find it. "

"Now is the time to unite the soul and the world. Now is the time to see the sunlight dancing as one with the shadows."

"Gamble everything for love, if you're a true human being. If not, leave this gathering."

"Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy, absentminded. Someone sober will worry about things going badly. Let the lover be."

"Why should I be unhappy? Every parcel of my being is in full bloom."
