"Love wishes these words to be released."

"Meaning is a treasure hidden in the sands of words." -- Rumi

All great discoveries, inventions, journeys, ideas, actions, and life transformations begin with inspiration. Let's celebrate a Year of Inspiration in Life for ourselves and in the solitude of our hearts.

This collection of short quotes and poems from Rumi, one of the greatest mystical poets of all time, includes inspirational and contemplative aphorisms categorized under twelve topics (for twelve months of the year): Words, Quest, Awakening, Life, Mind, Love, Happiness, Heart, Universe, Union, Prayers, and Silence.

A new translation from the Persian, the book also includes Rumi's advice, proverbs, and Last Will.
