“There are different wells within your heart.
Some fill with each good rain,
Others are far too deep for that.

In one well
You have just a few precious cups of water,
That "love" is literally something of yourself,
It can grow as slow as a diamond
If it is lost.

Your love
Should never be offered to the mouth of a
Stranger,
Only to someone
Who has the valor and daring
To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife
Then weave them into a blanket
To protect you.

There are different wells within us.
Some fill with each good rain,
Others are far, far too deep
For that.”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“Beloved,/ I am so glad,/ So very glad You have come.”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“I wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in darkness,

The Astonishing Light
Of your own Being!”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“ز دست جور تو گفتم ز شهر خواهم رفت
به خنده گفت که حافظ برو که پای تو بست”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“ما آزموده ایم در این شهر بخت خویش
بیرون کشید باید از این ورطه رخت خویش...”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“In times of youth, drinking is better.
With the joyful, linking is better.
The world is a mere temporal inn;
With the shipwrecked, sinking is better.”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“دمی با غم به سر بردن جهان یک سر نمی‌ارزد
به می بفروش دلق ما کز این بهتر نمی‌ارزد

به کوی می فروشانش به جامی بر نمی‌گیرند
زهی سجاده تقوا که یک ساغر نمی‌ارزد

رقیبم سرزنش‌ها کرد کز این باب رخ برتاب
چه افتاد این سر ما را که خاک در نمی‌ارزد

شکوه تاج سلطانی که بیم جان در او درج است
کلاهی دلکش است اما به ترک سر نمی‌ارزد

چه آسان می‌نمود اول غم دریا به بوی سود
غلط کردم که این طوفان به صد گوهر نمی‌ارزد

تو را آن به که روی خود ز مشتاقان بپوشانی
که شادی جهان گیری غم لشکر نمی‌ارزد

چو حافظ در قناعت کوش و از دنیی دون بگذر
که یک جو منت دونان دو صد من زر نمی‌ارزد”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“چــون غـــمـت را نتـوان یافت مگر در دلِ شــاد

...مـا به امـّـیـدِ غــمـت خـاطــرِ شــادی طــلبـیم”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“نگارم دوش در مجلس به عزم رقص چون برخاست
گره بگشود از ابرو و بر دل‌های یاران زد”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“من ترک عشق شاهد و ساغر نمی‌کنم
صد بار توبه کردم و ديگر نمی‌کنم
باغ بهشت و سايه طوبی و قصر و حور
با خاک کوی "دوست" برابر نمی‌کنم ”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“با دلارامی مرا خاطر خوش است
کز دلم یک باره برد آرام را”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“بشنو این نکته که خود را ز غم آزاده کنی

خون خوری گر طلب روزی ننهاده کنی

آخرالامر گل کوزه گران خواهی شد

حالیا فکر سبو کن که پر از باده کنی

گر از آن آدمیانی که بهشتت هوس است

عیش با آدمی ای چند پری زاده کنی

تکیه بر جای بزرگان نتوان زد به گزاف

مگر اسباب بزرگی همه آماده کنی

اجرها باشدت ای خسرو شیرین دهنان

گر نگاهی سوی فرهاد دل افتاده کنی

خاطرت کی رقم فیض پذیرد هیهات

مگر از نقش پراگنده ورق ساده کنی

کار خود گر به کرم بازگذاری حافظ

ای بسا عیش که با بخت خداداده کنی

ای صبا بندگی خواجه جلال الدین کن

که جهان پرسمن و سوسن آزاده کنی”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“ما در پیاله عکس رخ یار دیده‌ایم
ای بی خبر ز لذت شرب مدام ما

هرگز نمیرد آنکه دلش زنده شد به عشق
ثبت است در جریده‌ی عالم دوام ما”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“ماجرای من و معشوق مرا پایان نیست
هرچه آغاز ندارد نپذیرد انجام”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“مِی خور که هر که آخر کار جهان بدید از غم سبک برآمد و رَطل گران گرفت
بر برگِ گُل به خونِ شقایق نوشته‌اند
کآن کس که پخته شد می چون ارغوان گرفت”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“ناصحم گفت که جز غم چه هنر دارد عشق
گفتم ای خواجه عاقل هنری بهتر از این”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“Son yatacağı yer bir iki avuç topraktan ibaret olan kişiye de ki: Sarayını, çardağını göklere kadar yükseltmeye ne hacet var?" Hafız-ı Şirazî”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“The Garden of Paradise may be pleasant, but forget not the shade of the willow-tree and the fair margin of the fruitful field.” “Now,”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“...
چشم آسایش که دارد از سپهر تیزرو
ساقیا جامی به من ده تا بیاسایم دمی
زیرکی را گفتم این احوال بین خندید و گفت
صعب روزی، بوالعجب کاری، پریشان عالمی
...
در طریق عشقبازی امن و آسایش بلاست
ریش باد آن دل که با درد تو خواهد مرهمی
اهل کام و ناز را در کوی رندی راه نیست
رهروی باید جهان سوزی نه خامی بی غمی
آدمی در عالم خاکی نمی آید به دست
عالمی از نو بباید ساخت وز نو آدمی
گریه ی حافظ چه سنجد پیش استغنای عشق
کاندرین دریا نماید هفت دریا شبنمی ”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“چو منصور از مراد آنان که بردارند بردارند
بدین درگاه حافظ را چو میخوانند می رانند

در این حضرت چو مشتاقان نیاز آرند ناز آرند
که با این درد اگر در بند درمانند درمانند”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“If at last thou attain the desire of thy life, Cast the world aside, yea, abandon it!”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“Fear not to follow with pious feet the corpse of Hafiz, for though he was drowned in the ocean of sin, he may find a place in paradise.”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“Bhagaradgitah: He who knows himself in everything and everything in himself, will not injure himself by himself. This is the sum and tenor of all morality, and this is the standpoint of a man knowing himself a Brahman.”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan


“For as you talk of God,
I see great parades with wildly colorful bands
Streaming from your mind and heart,
Carrying wonderful and secret messages
To every corner of this world.”
― Hafez, quote from The Divan

Popular quotes

“I taught him, 'he quavered, "to trust in love. I said:'when love comes, that is reality.' I said: 'Passion does not blind. No. Passion is sanity, and the woman you love, she is the only person you will ever really understand.”
― E.M. Forster, quote from A Room with a View


“Perhaps I cannot make my people good, she told herself, but I should at least try to make them a little less bad.”
― George R.R. Martin, quote from A Dance with Dragons


“Until recently each generation found it more expedient to plead guilty to the charge of being young and ignorant, easier to take the punishment meted out by the older generation (which had itself confessed to the same crime short years before). The command to grow up at once was more bearable than the faceless horror of wavering purpose, which was youth.”
― Maya Angelou, quote from I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings


“There is no Master but the Master,” he said, “and QT-1 is his prophet.”
― Isaac Asimov, quote from I, Robot


“Annabeth's voice caught on the word friend. Percy was a lot more than that. Even boyfriend really didn't cover it. They'd been through so much together, at this point Percy was part of her--a sometimes annoying part, sure, but definitely a part she could not live without.”
― Rick Riordan, quote from The House of Hades

About BookQuoters

BookQuoters is a community of passionate readers who enjoy sharing the most meaningful, memorable and interesting quotes from great books. As the world communicates more and more via texts, memes and sound bytes, short but profound quotes from books have become more relevant and important. For some of us a quote becomes a mantra, a goal or a philosophy by which we live. For all of us, quotes are a great way to remember a book and to carry with us the author’s best ideas.

We thoughtfully gather quotes from our favorite books, both classic and current, and choose the ones that are most thought-provoking. Each quote represents a book that is interesting, well written and has potential to enhance the reader’s life. We also accept submissions from our visitors and will select the quotes we feel are most appealing to the BookQuoters community.

Founded in 2018, BookQuoters has quickly become a large and vibrant community of people who share an affinity for books. Books are seen by some as a throwback to a previous world; conversely, gleaning the main ideas of a book via a quote or a quick summary is typical of the Information Age but is a habit disdained by some diehard readers. We feel that we have the best of both worlds at BookQuoters; we read books cover-to-cover but offer you some of the highlights. We hope you’ll join us.
