How long will you say, "I will conquer the whole worldby Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi
English version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
Original Language Persian/Farsi
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.
