Yunus Emre: True speech is the fruit of not speaking

....Unless you witness all of creation in a single glance,
you're in sin even with all your religion.

The explanation of the Law is this:
The Law is a ship. Truth is her ocean.

No matter how strong the wood,
the sea can smash the ship.

The secret is this:
A "saint" of religion may in reality be an unbeliever....

Yunus Emre: True speech is the fruit of not speaking

A great poem about speech and silence, words and truth
(and don't skip Ivan Granger's commentary).
