It’s Thursday, and even though it’s been a short week… sometimes we just need a little cut-the-the-chase kind of inspiration to keep us going. Here are five of our favorite quotes from the Persian poet, Hafiz:
“Now that all your worry has proved such an unlucrative business,
Why not find a better job.”
“Fear is the cheapest room in the house.
I would like to see you living
In better conditions.”
“I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of you own being.”
“God wants to manhandle us,
Lock us up in a tiny room with Himself
And practice His dropkick.
The Beloved sometimes wants to do us a great favor:
Hold us upside down and shake all the nonsense out.”
“This place where you are right now,
God circled on a map for you.”
