[Sunlight] Discipline



The undisciplined man doesn't wrong himself alone—
he sets fire to the whole world.
Discipline enabled Heaven to be filled with light;
discipline enabled the angels to be immaculate and holy.

Bi adab tanhâ nah khvod-râ dâsht bad
balke âtash dar hameh âfâq zad
Az adab por-e nur gashtast in falak
vaz adab ma`sum o pâk âmad malak

-- Mathnawi I:79;91
