Khusrau's Quotes
that appeared in previous weeks

||||||

Utter a word of truth
That goes against the king,
And behead yourself with
The sword of your own tongue.

||||||

There are those who consume
Naans and kebabs even in their dreams;
And there are those who don't even dream,
Since they can't sleep due to starvation.

||||||

If you ask me the road to hell,
I would say a night in a lonely bedroom

||||||

Man can never be satisfied,
Even if he gets to the heaven;
How can he?
Adam himself couldn't.

||||||

One who laughs at the plight of lovers,
himself needs being cried at.

||||||

I am a pagan and a worshipper of love,
The creed (of musalmans) I do not need;
Every vein of mine has become taunt like a wire,
The (Brahman’s) girdle I do not need.

||||||

A needle is better than a sword;
The latter cuts, while the former sews

||||||

If you cannot tolerate
The pressing of a needle against your body,
You have no right to raise a sword,
Against another human being.

||||||

If it was not for self-defense,
I would declare the making of weapons
The worst, the most wicked profession.

Yousuf Saeed, 2001
