The Inspirer of Faith


How long will you say,

"I will conquer the whole world and fill it with myself"?

Even if snow covered the world completely,

the sun could melt it with a glance.

A single spark of God's mercy

can turn poison into springwater.

Where there is doubt,

He establishes certainty.

Rumi, Mathnawi I:542-546, tr. Helminski
