[Sunlight] If you serve God



Though you read a hundred volumes without a pause,
you won't remember a single point without the Divine decree;
but if you serve God and read not a single book,
you'll learn rare sciences within your own heart.

Var be-khvâni sad sohof bi sakteh-'i
bi Qadr yâdet na-mânad nokteh-'i
Var koni khedmat na-khvâni yek ketâb
`elm-hâ-ye nâdereh yâbi ze jayb

-- Mathnawi VI:1931-1932
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
"Rumi: Jewels of Remembrance"
Threshold Books, 1996
