Persian Sufi Master, Known as the "Pious of Herat" and "Shaikhul Islam"
"Can you walk on water? You have done no better than a straw. Can you fly in the air? You have done no better than a bluebottle. Conquer your heart; then you may become somebody."
"Desire for knowledge is the path of honor: desire for wealth is the path of dishonor. Wealth is the chain that slaves wear; knowledge the kingly crown."
"Fasting is only saving bread, but if you have conquered the heart you have conquered everything."
"Human sorrow springs from three things: to want before it is due; to want more than your share; to want what belongs to others."
