One who sees without distortion...by Rumi
One who sees without distortion,
free of prejudice,has light in the eyes.
Self-interest blinds you
and buries your knowledge in a grave.
Lack of prejudice makes ignorance wise
its presence makes knowledge perverse.
Accept no bribe, and your sight is clear
act selfishly, and you will be enslaved.
Mathnawi II: 2750-2753
