Subtle Conversations

“Don’t be hurt if I speak honestly with my friends. I gave my word not to be hypocritical. Because you couldn’t wait for the word I wanted to say, it was lost. No other words come to mind. If you have something to say, wait until I have finished speaking. These dervish conversations are subtle. If something is lost now, it will be lost; the words that will come later will be different.” – Rumi’s Sun: The Teachings of Shams of Tabriz
