“Poetry and mysticism are both universal languages of the human soul and nowhere do they reinforce each other more than in the life and legacy of Jalaluddin Rumi.”
Huston Smith, 2000

“He [Rumi] offends no one and includes everyone, as a perfect human being who is in search of love, truth and the unity of the human soul … One of the great humanists, philosophers and poets who belongs to humanity.”
UNESCO, 2006

“I think for Rumi joy is primary. To some people, the world is filled with grief, but Rumi would say, ‘I think that the world is primarily graceful, a gift.”
Coleman Barks, 1995 , in conversation with Bill Moyers

“Maulana [Rumi] calls us to participate in the dance that moves through the universe, to circle around the Sun of Love.”
Annemarie Schimmel, 1992

“He was also a man of profound insight into the nature of [hu]man.”
Erich Fromm, 1965

“In Rumi the Persian mystical genius found its supreme expression.” 
“It may well be argued that he  is the supreme mystical poet of all mankind.”
Arthur J.  Arberry       1950, 1961

“Rumi is without doubt the most eminent Sufi poet whom Persia produced, while his mystical Masnawi deserves to rank amongst the great poems of all time.”
Edward Browne, 1906
