My dear,

If it’s possible for you to give without losing a part of yourself then do it.

Do not hold anything back. Do not give for a profit – give for free, do not give to some – give to all. Do not hold anything back.

Learn from the sun,

Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth, “You owe me.”

Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky.

Falsely yours,
Khwāja Shamsu d-Dīn Muhammad Hāfez-e Shīrāzī
