Do not prattle before the People of the Path, rather consume yourself. You have an inverted knowledge and religion if you are upside down in relation to Reality.
Man is wrapping his net around himself. A lion (the man of the Way) bursts his cage asunder.
(The Sufi master Sanai of Afghanistan, teacher of Rumi, in The Walled Garden of Truth, written in 1131 A.D)
The Sufis, Idries Shah, on one of the first pages.
