Once that expansive truth has been tasted, we understand much from even one hint.

Words are spoken according to the capacity of the listeners.

Once they breathe in, then wisdom will fill their hearts.

But they say, “For heaven’s sake, why aren’t the words spoken?”

The answer is, “For heaven’s sake, why don’t you draw this wisdom in?”

Whoever withholds the power to listen also withholds from the speaker the impulse to speak.

— Rumi / Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī
