[Sunlight] The Realm of Fault


O, happy the soul that saw its own faults,
and if anyone mentioned a fault,
wished eagerly to take responsibility—
for half of each person
has always belonged to the realm of fault,
but the other half belongs
to the Realm of the Unseen.

Ay khonok-jâni keh `ayb-e khvish did
har keh `aybi goft ân bar khvod kharid
Zânke nim-e u ze `aybestân bodast
vân digar nimesh ze Ghaybestân bodast

-- Mathnawi II: 3034-3035
