Treasure Island

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

(1207 - 1273 / Persia)

Passion makes the old medicine new:


Passion makes the old medicine new:
Passion lops off the bough of weariness.
Passion is the elixir that renews:

when passion is present?
Oh, don't sigh heavily from fatigue:
seek passion, seek passion, seek passion!
