More quotes from the novel “The Museum of Innocence” by Orhan Pamuk and a poem by Rumi.

“I care more about the beauty of a sentence than politics.” -Orhan Pamuk

SAY I AM YOU
I am dust particles in sunlight.
I am the round sun.

To the bits of dust I say, Stay.
To the sun, Keep moving.

I am morning mist,
and the breathing of evening.

I am wind in the top of a grove,
and surf on the cliff.

Mast, rudder, helmsman, and keel,
I am also the coral reef they founder on.

I am a tree with a trained parrot in its branches.
Silence, thought, and voice.

The musical air coming through a flute,
a spark of a stone, a flickering
in metal. Both candle,
and the moth crazy around it.

Rose, and the nightingale
lost in the fragrance.

I am all orders of being, the circling galaxy,
the evolutionary intelligence, the lift,

and the falling away. What is,
what isn’t. You who know
Jelaluddin, You the one
in all, say who

I am. Say I
am You. —Rumi(Shams of Tabriz)
