Carpe diem — means seize the day. Because, believe it or not, each and every one of us in this room is one day going stop breathing, turn cold and die.

Robin Williams (via heyashtisdale)

Now I understand why Shams-i Tabrizi was restless all his life [but] could not utter one sentence, could not compose one line of poetry. It is not possible. For writing, lecturing and composing, [one] should remain at the level of Mawlawi [Rumi]. If you step over the border of Shams-i Tabrizi, you are not under your own control anymore; there is the place of anguished dancing and drunken and painful movements, it is not the place of sitting and talking.

Ali Shariati, Kavir, pg. 268 (as quoted in Abdollah Vakily’s Ali Shariati and the Mystical Tradition of Islam). (via indigenousdialogues)
