Let them take you where they will.
Follow those private hints,
and never leave the premises.”

“May this marriage be blessed.
May this marriage be as sweet as milk and
May this marriage be as intoxicating as
May this marriage be fruitful like a date tree.
May this marriage be full of laughter and
everyday a paradise.
May this marriage be a seal of compassion
for here and hereafter.
May this marriage be as welcome as the
full moon in the night sky.
Listen lovers, now you go on, as I become
silent and kiss this blessed night.”
“All day I think about it, then at night I say it.
Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing?
I have no idea.
My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that,and I intend to end up there.
Who looks out with my eyes? What is the soul?
I cannot stop asking.
If I could taste one sip of an answer,
I could break out of this prison for drunks.
I didn’t come here of my own accord, and I can’t leave that way.
Whoever brought me here, will have to take me home.”
“If it is bread that you seek, you will have bread.
If it is the soul you seek, you will find the soul.
If you understand this secret, you know you are that which you seek.”
“Travelers, it is late.
Life's sun is going to set.
During these brief days that you have strength,
be quick and spare no effort of your wings”
“And he misses her
Like a wind starved sail
He sits knowing what direction to go
But the current keeps pulling him
“My heart rushes into the garden,
joyfully tasting all the delights.
But reason frowns, disapproving
of the heart's bad manners.”
“Doing as others told me, I was Blind.
Coming when others called me, I was Lost.
Then I left everyone, myself as well.
Then I found Everyone, Myself as well.”
“Try not to resist the changes that come your way. Instead let life live through you. And do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?”
