If you serve Rumi

Though you read 
a hundred volumes without a pause, 

You won't remember 
a single point without the Divine decree; 

But if you serve God
and read not a single book,

You'll learn rare sciences
within your own heart.

~ Rumi
Mathnawi VI:1931-1932
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
"Rumi: Jewels of Remembrance"
Threshold Books, 1996
