I tried to find Him on the Christian cross, but He was not there I went to the Temple of the Hindus and to the old pagodas, but I could not find a trace of Him anywhere. I searched on the mountains and in the valleys but neither in the heights nor in the depths was I able to find Him. I went to the Caaba in Mecca, but He was not there either. I questioned the scholars and philosophers but He was beyond their understanding. I then looked into my heart and it was there where He dwelled that I saw Him He was nowhere else to be found.Rate it:(5.00 / 2 votes)Say it

Jalal ud-Din Rumi

Reme is a descriptive name meaning "the Roman" since he lived most of his life in an area called Rem because it was once ruled by the Byzantine Empire
