Be as you are

Dervish

“God created you free; so be as you have been created!”

Ten Dervishes…

Sadi Tomb, Shiraz

Ten dervishes can sleep beneath one blanket; but two kings cannot reign in one land.  A devoted man will eat half his bread, and give the other half to dervishes.  A ruler may have a realm, but yet plot to overcome the world.

~ Shaykh Saadi of Shiraz (whose tomb is above)
