In search of some wise and inspiring words to live by you can never go wrong with the 13th-century Persian poet, scolar, and Sufi mystic Rumi:
Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
“Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames”
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and right-doing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”
“You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?”
