"تو خود را گمان بردهای پر خرد
انائی که پر شد دگر چون برد؟
ز دعوی پری زان تهی میروی
تهی آی تا پر معنای شوی"
Sa’di - Bustan - Ch4 V15
to khod raa gamaan bordeyi por khord
enaa’i ke por shod degar chon bord?
ze da’vaa pory zaan tohi miravad
tohi aay taa por ma’naa shavi
You imagine yourself full of wisdom
How can that which is full take more?
Pour out your claims of fullness and
Be empty, so that you may be filled!
"You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean, in a drop."
— Rumi, a 13th-century Persian Muslim poet, theologian and Sufi mystic (via chezsheakzs)
"You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming."
— Pablo Neruda (via wholelottaquotes)
"Lifestyle feminism ushered in the notion that there could be as many versions of feminism as there were women. Suddenly the politics was being slowly removed from feminism. And the assumption prevailed that no matter what a woman’s politics, be she conservative or liberal, she too could fit feminism into her existing lifestyle. Obviously this way of thinking has made feminism more acceptable because its underlying assumption is that women can be feminists without fundamentally challenging or changing themselves or the culture."
— bell hooks (Feminism is for Everybody)
