Peace to you, whoever you may be...
Here's today's excerpt from the poetry of Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi:
'The world's flattery and hypocrisy is a sweet morsel,
eat less of it, for it is full of fire,
Its fire is hidden while its taste is manifest,
but its smoke becomes visible in the end'!
Mathnawi I, 1855- 1856
