Hafiz

What is the difference between your experience of existence and that of a saint?
The saint knows that the spiritual path is a sublime chess game with God and that
the beloved has just made such a fantastic move that the saint is now continually
tripping over joy and bursting out with laughter and saying 'I surrender!'
whereas my dear, I am afraid you still think you have a thousand serious moves."
