Rumi

"Pain is a treasure, for it contains mercies."
"Although you see the pit, you cannot avoid it."
"Two there are who are never satisfied -- the lover of the world and the lover of knowledge."
"Birds make great sky-circles of their freedom.How do they learn it?They fall and falling,they're given wings."
"You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?"
"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it."
"Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love."
"Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure."
"If in thirst you drink water from a cup, you see God in it. Those who are not in love with God will see only their own faces in it."
"We come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust."
"Who could be so lucky? Who comes to a lake for water and sees the reflection of moon."
"A thousand half-loves must be forsaken to take one whole heart home."
