There is a quote in the Internet which says: "Life is a balance between holding on and letting go". People cited it to Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī (Rumi). My question is that:

  • What is the exact address of this quote in his poems?
  • What is the exact poem/sentence in Persian for that?
  • Are you sure this quote is from poetry? If so, the [poetry] tag is applicable

  • I have wondered that too. It does not sound at all like Rumi's voice- it has a modern ring. I assume it's a paraphrase of something he wrote. But no place where I've seen this "quote" ever gives any more information- where in Rumi's writings it comes from, or what the nature of the context is. Dec 12, 2022 at 20:16
