Wings of hope languish
from lack of use.
When wings dissipate and weaken,
life begins to lose its value.
Every cell in your body is created to rise to challenges.
Your life is meant to confront
everything that holds you captive.
Don't sit at the bottom of the well,
not caring about salvation.
Listen to the voice within calling to you.
Reach for eminence
beyond your maturity!
- Rumi, 13th Century Persian poet and Sufi mystic
