Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi
In generosity and helping others be like a river,
In compassion and mercy be like the sun,
In concealing others' faults be like the night,
In anger and fury be like a dead,
In modesty and humility be like the earth,
In tolerance be like a sea,
Either exist as you are or be as you look.
Come, come, whoever you are;
Whether you are an unbeliever, a fireworshipper or an idolater,
This is not a gate of despair.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve broken your repentance a hundred times,
Still come again.
