[Sunlight] A goodly core



The core of every fruit is better than its rind:
consider the body to be the rind,
and its friend the spirit to be the core.
After all, the Human Being has a goodly core;
seek it for one moment
if you are of those inspired by the Divine Breath.

Maghz-e har miveh behast az pustesh
pust dân tan-râ va maghz ân dustesh
Maghz naghzi dârad âkher Âdami
yek dami ân-râ talab gar ze ân Dami

-- Mathnawi III:3417-3418
