THOSE who deny God are like a man who, forsaking the beauty of sunshine and moonlight, has buried his head in a pit, only to ask, "If the spirit of God is present in nature, then where is its light?" In order to see the beauty of God around him, he must first lift up his head and look."

- Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi (1207-1273), Masnavi III:4796-7

"All things have I willed for you, and you too, for your own sake."
