Dear soul, Love alone cuts arguments short,
for it alone comes to the rescue when you cry for help against
Eloquence is dumbfounded by Love: it dares not wrangle;
for the lover fears that, if he answers back,
the pearl of inner experience might fall out of his mouth.
Rumi – translation by Camille and Kabir Helminski
