"Be like a stream in generosity and succor,
And like the sun in tenderness and compassion,
Be like the night in covering the faults of others,
Like the dead in anger and irritability,
Be like the earth in humility and humbleness,
But like the sea in indulgence,
Either appear as you are or be as you appear. "

İlim ilim bilmektir         Knowledge should mean a full grasp of knowledge:
İlim kendin bilmektir         Knowledge means to know yourself, heart and soul.
Sen kendini bilmezsin         If you have failed to understand yourself,
Ya nice okumaktır        Then all of your reading has missed its call.

Yunus Emre (1238-1320 )

Everyone is overridden by thoughts;
that´s why they have so much heartache and sorrow.
At times I give myself up to thought purposefully;
but when I choose,
I spring up from those under its sway.
I am like a high-flying bird,
and thought is a gnat:
how should a gnat overpower me?


     Rumi - Mathnawi II, 3559-3561
