Reason, leave now! You'll not find wisdom here!

by Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi

English version by Andrew Harvey
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Reason, leave now! You'll not find wisdom here!
Were you thin as a hair, there'd be no room.
The Sun has risen! In its vast dazzle
Every lamp is drowned.

-- from The Way of Passion: A Celebration of Rumi, by Andrew Harvey
