Rumi: A Persian Poet | Stories of Life

I love ancient Persian poets. They were all so wise. A while back I translated one of his poems about knowledge. I found this small poem on the internet, which I would [huge_it_share]really love to share with you all.

“Listen!
Clam up your mouth and be silent like an oyster shell,
for that tongue of yours is the enemy of the soul, my friend.
When the lips are silent, the heart has a hundred tongues.”

Rumi
