Seven Advice Of Rumi

In generosity and helping others
be like the river.

In compassion and grace
be like the sun.

In concealing others' faults
be like the night.

In anger and fury
be like the dead.

In modesty and humility
be like the soil.

In tolerance
be like the ocean.

Either you appear as you are or
be as you appear.

... Rumi

thank you for posting this- i love this poem and have been searching online to find this poem in the original farsi calligraphy. could you post the original image in a larger size so the calligraphy is clearer? I am trying to get a clearer image of it to see the calligraphy but that one is pretty small. thank you!
