Before this I sought a purchaser for my discourse,
 and now I wish of you to buy me from my words.
I have carved idols enough to beguile every person; 
now I am drunk with Abraham, I am sated with Azar.
An idol without color and scent arrived; 
my hand was put out of action by him.
See another master for the shop of idol-making.
I have cleared the shop of myself, I have thrown away the idols;
having realized the worth of madness,
I have become free of thoughts.
If an image enters my heart I say,
"Depart, you who lead astray!" 
If it displays grossness, I destroy its composition.
Who is suitable for Leyli? He who becomes Majnun for her.
That man is at the foot of the flag whose soul is on the other side.

(Rumi)
