“You suppose you are the trouble
But you are the cure 
You suppose that you are the lock on the door 
But you are the key that opens it 
It’s too bad that you want to be someone else 
You don’t see your own face, your own beauty
Yet, no face is more beautiful than yours.”
~ Rumi

 

 

 

*Rumi

Born 1207 A.D

Died  1273 A.D

Rumi is a descriptive name meaning “Roman” since he lived most of his life in an area called “Rum” (then under the control of Seljuq dynasty) because it was once ruled by the Eastern Roman Empire. He was one of the figures who flourished in the Sultanate of Rum.
