“And still, after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, ‘You owe Me.’ Look what happens with a love like that, it lights the Whole Sky.”
MEMORABLE QUOTES, 21 Jun 2021
Hāfez (12 Feb 1317 – 14 May 1390) was a Persian poet whose collected works (The Divan) are regarded as a pinnacle of Persian literature and are to be found in the homes of most people in Iran, who learn his poems by heart and still use them as proverbs and sayings. His life and poems have been the subject of much analysis, commentary and interpretation, influencing post-14th century Persian writing more than any other author.
