Refresh your spirit - Listen to ancient Persian poet Hafiz

These ten quotes from 14th-century Hafiz are perfectly applicable to us in today's world. And very uplifting to the heart! 💟

  1. "Laugh because that is the purest sound." 
  2. "The only friends who are free from cares are the goblet of wine and a book. Give me wine…that I may for a time forget the cares of the world." 
  3. "Love is simply creation's greatest joy." 
  4. Run my dear, from anything that may not strengthen your precious budding wings. Run like hell my dear, from anyone likely to put a sharp knife into the sacred, tender vision of your beautiful heart. 
  5. "Remember for just one minute of the day, it would be best to try looking upon yourself more as God does, for She knows your true royal nature." 
  6. "Pulling out the chair beneath your mind and watching you fall upon God What else is there for Hafiz to do that is any fun in this world!" 
  7. "Listen; this world is the lunatic's sphere, Don't always agree it's real, even with my feet upon it and the postman knowing my door. My address is somewhere else." 
  8. "When you can make others laugh with jokes that belittle no one and your words always unite, Hafiz will vote for you to be God." 
  9. "I know you have a hundred complex cases against God in court, but never mind, let's just get out of this mess." 
  10. "Be kind to your sleeping heart. Take it out into the vast fields of light…And let it breathe."
