RUMI - "Poem of the Butterflies"

The people of this world are like the three butterflies in front of a candle's flame.

The first one went closer and said:I know about love.

The second one touched the flame lightly with his wings and said:I know how love's fire can burn.

The third one threw himself into the heart of the flame and was consumed. 

He alone knows what true love is.
