Shir and Sher: Rumi’s Quote

Mevlana Rumi Shrine [Museum] Entrance

Mevlana Rumi Shrine [Museum] Entrance

Both species of deer ate grass and drank water: from this one came dung, and from that one pure musk.
Both reeds drank from the same water source, but this one is empty and that one full of sugar

Do not measure the actions of holy men by comparing them to yourself
Though shēr (lion) and shīr (milk) are similar in writing.
