Excerpt from a BBC Culture website article

“The first story goes:
Once a young woman came to Hafiz and said,
“What is the sign of someone knowing God?”
And Hafiz became very quiet, and stood in silence
for nearly a minute… lovingly looking deep into the
young woman’s eye, then softly spoke,
“My dear, they have dropped the knife. The person
who knows God has dropped the cruel knife most
so often use upon their tender self – and others.” ♥
