    Maria, what a beautiful comment. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experience with this group of quotes. Rumi always speaks so clearly to me. “Humility is the gateway to being close to the world.” I love this. Thank you.

    I particularly like number 16. Or this one I picked right now, it could be another one in 5 minutes. They are all sublime. You can enter them like a path and see where it takes you. Or you can hold it very close to you, like a ring or a necklace. Something that you look at many times, and its different every time. I am a Buddhist and in Buddhism you have the Brahma Viharas to which I always like to add humility for myself. It is something that in our success driven culture does not get much attention. Humility is the gateway to being close to the world.

    Do you know the name of the full poem for #7 – “Wherever you go, whatever you do, be in love?” All I can find is this one quote and I’d like to read the entire poem. Thank you!

    Pamela, what a beautiful interpretation. I think being able to question yourself is one of the markers of spiritual maturity and curiosity <3

    I love number 25.
    This shows me how our mind can control our way of thinking and send us into the wrong direction, which we believe that is the only truth if we do not start questioning ourselves.
