Saadi's Advice on Finding True Wisdom
"Roam abroad in the world, and take thy fill of its enjoyments before the day shall come when thou must quit it for good." ~ Saadi
عشق در دل ماند و
یار از دست رفت
Love remained in my heart,
(even as) the Friend slipped through my hands.
Translated by Najim
"The rose and the thorn, and sorrow and gladness are linked together." ~ Saadi
O bird of the morning, learn love from the moth
Because it burnt, lost its life, and found no voice.
These pretenders are ignorantly in search of Him,
Because he who obtained knowledge has not returned.
