Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.

Jalāl al-Dīn Muḥammad Rūmī, known simply as Rumi, was a 13th-century Persian poet and spiritual teacher. Through the use of metaphorical and allegorical language, Rumi’s writing reflected his interest in the divine and the interconnectedness among all living things. His poetry continues to be a relevant source of inspiration today, addressing life’s complexities and the quest for meaning and mindfulness. This quote draws a parallel between the nourishing impact of rainfall and the nurturing power of words, gently reminding us that both play a pivotal role in fostering growth. On the other hand, anger can obstruct that growth, so we must be careful with our words and how we deliver them. Just as a plant flourishes with the appropriate amount of rainfall, so too does a person thrive with encouragement and support.
