The minute I heard my first love story

I started looking for you,

not knowing how blind that was.

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.

They’re in each other all along.

(Jalaludding Rumi, “The Minute I Heard My First Love Story” dari terjemahan bahasa Inggris Coleman Barks)

“Ruh-ruh itu ibarat prajurit2 yang dibaris-bariskan. Yang saling mengenal di antara mereka pasti akan saling melembut dan menyatu. Yang tidak saling mengenal di antara mereka pasti akan saling berbeda dan berpisah” (HR Bukhari [3336] secara mu’allaq dari Aisyah, dan Muslim [2638] dari Abu Hurairah)
