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


I like this one very much from the Rumi page on Facebook.

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

There’s way too much thunder these days in public discourse and far too little rain.

About Mike
A resident of the “30 square miles surrounded by reality,” I spend most of my time teaching economics and statistics to undergraduate students. I enjoy, naturally, economics and business, but also science (I was once an astronomical observatory assistant), politics, photography, food, travel and sports. Madison has grown quite a bit since 1978 when Governor Lee Dreyfus made that remark. According to Wikipedia, Madison is 67.3 square miles of land and 16 square miles of water.
