I’ve seen the story
I’ve read it over once or twice
I said that you say
A little bit of bad advice
I been in trouble
Happened to me all my life
I lie and you lie
And who would get the sharpest knife


Bee Gees “This Is Where I Came In”

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.
Mevlana Rumi

If the door shuts, do not go away. Be patient, even if every possibility seems closed. The friend has secret ways known to no one else. Mevlana Rumi

This love is complete,complete,complete.
And this separate self is imaginary,imaginary,imaginary.
This light is glorious,glorious,glorious.
Today there is union,union,union!

Mevlana Rumi
