  • تو مشو غره به علمش عهد جو  ** علم چون قشرست و عهدش مغز او  1170

  • Explaining that when the evil-doer becomes settled in evil-doing and sees the effect of the (spiritual) fortune of the doers of righteousness, he from envy becomes a devil and preventer of good, like Satan; for he whose stack is burnt desires that all (others) should have their stacks burnt: ‘hast thou seen him who forbids a servant (of God) when he performs the (ritual) prayer?’

  • این سخن در سینه دخل مغزهاست  ** در خموشی مغز جان را صد نماست  1175
