'Time an enemy not easy to slay. It can tear the wing apart, sever it with such an unclean cut one can bleed for days.
An hour is a clever hallucination, a year more so,
a lifetime.....the grand hoax.
The way sound and light travel, the way all come from a source that has never moved,
at the height of the action of longing or in the perfect resistance to all the forces of morals...
everything can stop.
That is where you want to be, where the clock's tyranny has lost its influence.
One always gets a big prize for that - for any intelligent, overall functional, useful deductions.
The door prize is, heaven wraps itself in a box and places itself at your feet.
With such a door prize, try to image what the prom queen gets.'
~Hafiz, as translated by Daniel Ladinsky
