Knowledge and Love

Knowledge said to me, Love is madness;
Love said to me, Knowledge is calculation

O slave of calculation, do not be a bookworm!

Love is Presence entire, Knowledge nothing but a Veil. 

The universe is moved by the warmth of Love;
Knowledge deals with the Attributes, 
Love is a vision of the Essence; 

Love is peace and permanence, Love is Life and Death:
Knowledge is the rising question, 
Love is the hidden answer.

Kingdom, faith and pride are all miracles of Love;
The crowned kings and lords are base slaves of Love; 

Love is the Space and the Creation, Love is Time and Earth!
Love is conviction entire, and conviction is the key!

The luxury of destination is forbidden in the religion of Love;
Fighting the storms is permitted, 
but the comfort of the shore is forbidden;

Lightning is permitted to Love, Harvest is forbidden.

Knowledge is the child of the Book, 
Love is the mother of the Book.

Allama Iqbal

Most Beautiful Emily Dickinson Quotes

“I have no life but this-
To lead it here-
Nor any death - but lest
Dispelled from there-
Nor tie to earths to come-
Nor action new-
Except through this extent-
The realm of you.” 

“Much Madness is divinest Sense --
To a discerning Eye --
Much Sense -- the starkest Madness --
'Tis the Majority.

“It was not death, for I stood up,
And all the dead lie down;
It was not night, for all the bells
Put out their tongues, for noon"

“Faith—is the Pierless Bridge
Supporting what We see
Unto the Scene that We do not—
Too slender for the eye"

“The Heart is the Capital of the Mind—
The Mind is a single State—
The Heart and the Mind together make
A single Continent—"

“The soul selects her own society,
Then shuts the door;
On her divine majority
Obtrude no more.” 

“I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us -- don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know".

“I wonder if it hurts to live,
And if they have to try,
And whether, could they choose between,
They would not rather die.” 

“A power of Butterfly must be -
The Aptitude to fly
Meadows of Majesty concedes
And easy Sweeps of Sky -” 

“A Word that Breathes Distinctly
Has not the Power to Die” 

“Tell all the truth but tell it slant,
Success in circuit lies,
Too bright for our infirm delight
The truth's superb surprise;"

“Who has not found the heaven below
Will fail of it above.
God's residence is next to min,
His furniture is love.” 

I hide myself within my flower,
That, fading from your vase,
You, unsuspecting, feel for me
Almost a loneliness...” 

“We never know how high we are
Till we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies."

“Hunger is a way
Of standing outside windows
The entering takes away.”

“Lest Love should value less
What loss would value more,
Had it the stricken privilege ---
It cherishes before.” 

“I NEVER lost as much but twice,
And that was in the sod;
Twice have I stood a beggar
Before the door of God!"

“Pain - has an Element of Blank
It cannot recollect
When it begun - or if there were
a time when it was not -
It has no Future - but itself -
Its Infinite contain
Its Past - enlightened to perceive
New Periods - of Pain.” 

“We journey to the day,
And tell each other how we sang
To keep the dark away.” 

“If the stillness is Volcanic
In the human face
When upon a pain Titanic
Features keep their place-"

"If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain. "

“It might be lonelier
Without the Loneliness -
I’m so accustomed to my Fate -
Perhaps the Other - Peace –"

“They say that “Time assuages” -
Time never did assuage -
An actual suffering strengthens
As Sinews do, with age -
 "Time is a Test of Trouble -
But not a Remedy -
If such it prove, it prove too
There was no Malady”

“I stepped from plank to plank
So slow and cautiously;
The stars about my head I felt,
About my feet the sea.

"I knew not but the next
Would be my final inch,—
This gave me that precarious gait
Some call experience.” 

 “Hope is the thing with feathers
"That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.” 

“Because I could not stop for Death –
He kindly stopped for me –
The Carriage held but just Ourselves –
And Immortality.” 

“Experiment escorts us last-
His pungent company
will not allow an axiom
An opportunity” 

“Look back on Time, with kindly eyes -
He doubtless did his best -
How softly sinks that trembling sun
In Human Nature's West -”

A Love Quote for My Love ......

             "Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you've never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. 

 When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. 

There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. 

Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all.Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. 

You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.” 

― Bob Marley

Some Romantic Quotes of Jalal ad-Din Rumi

“The minute I heard my first love story, 
I started looking for you, not knowing 
how blind that was. 
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. 
They're in each other all along.” 

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing 
and right doing there is a field. 
I'll meet you there. 
When the soul lies down in that grass 
the world is too full to talk about.” 

“When I am with you, we stay up all night. 
When you're not here, I can't go to sleep. 
Praise God for those two insomnias! 
And the difference between them.” 

“Knock, And He'll open the door 
Vanish, And He'll make you shine like the sun 
Fall, And He'll raise you to the heavens 
Become nothing, And He'll turn you into everything.” 

“In your light I learn how to love. 
In your beauty, how to make poems. 
You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, 
but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” 

“This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, 
to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. 
First to let go of life. 
Finally, to take a step without feet.” 

A lover is always accused of something. 
But when he finds his love, whatever was lost 
in the looking comes back completely changed. 

“Be like the sun for grace and mercy. 
Be like the night to cover others' faults. 
Be like running water for generosity. 
Be like death for rage and anger. 
Be like the Earth for modesty. 
Appear as you are. Be as you appear.” 

“I have lived on the lip 
of insanity, wanting to know reasons, 
knocking on a door. It opens. 
I've been knocking from the inside.” 

You have forgotten the One 
who doesn't care about ownership, 
who doesn't try to turn a profit 
from every human exchange. 

Take someone who doesn't keep score, 
who's not looking to be richer, or afraid of losing, 
who has not the slightest interest even 
in his own personality: he's free. 

Know that my beloved is hidden from everyone
Know that she is beyond the belief of all beliefs
Know that in my heart she is as clear as the MOON
Know that she is the life in my body and in my soul.
