Our virtues are made by love, and our sins caused by the lack of it. Bowl of Saki, February 2, by Hazrat Inayat Khan Commentary by Hazrat Inayat Khan: There is one moral; the love that springs forth from self-denial and blooms in deeds of beneficence. The orthodox say, 'This is good, that is bad. This is right, that is wrong,' but to a Sufi the source of all good deeds is love.

The pain of love is the dynamite that breaks up the heart, even if it be

The pain of love is the dynamite that breaks up the heart, even if it be as hard as a rock. Bowl of Saki, February 1, by Hazrat Inayat Khan Commentary by Hazrat Inayat Khan: The effect of love is pain. The love that has no pain is no love.
