RUMI

COMFORTING  YOUR SOUL
    With friends, even if you were in a fire,
    it's like being in a garden

    if you were with an enemy, by a bad luck,
    even  though it was in a garden, it's like being in a fire.
   
   do not be egotitic with a friend
   it will make him an enemy  
   
   if you do good to other people to please God
   or to comfort your soul  
   
   you will find  people friendly
   and no malice or hatred will touch your heart

( Masnavi Rumi Vol. IV:1976-1980 )
