Rumi – 3 Quotes, 3 days Challenge – Day 2

Follow Us

Thanks for nominating me, hope I do justice.

I begin the 3 Quotes, 3 Days Challenge day 2 with –

“Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” ― Rumi

This quote is by Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, a Persian poet. It means that one should not raise voice and use bad words no matter how tense the situation is.Instead Raise impact of your words, let them have a meaning and let them reflect you so that it fill up others heart with love not hatred.

I shared this quote as now a days People raise their voice use bad words . We’ve all had heated discussions where voices were raised or have had moments where we yell .But if you look back at those times,Do you think were you able to get the result you were looking for? From my experience, I’m going to guess that the answer is no. All you do when you raise your voice is get the other person to stop listening to you.

So ,if you really want someone to “hear” you, your words  should be effective enough to generate positive impact, not how loud you say them.


I choose this picture because:

  • Words & Voice should always be an equilibrium
  • if we use wrong words & raise voice it will vanish all the beauty of our garden & if we use right words & polite voice our garden will flourish 🙂

Look forward for your thoughts.

  6. Rumi is one of my fav people to read daily – his quotes pack so much punch yet are so light to read. I loved this one and so glad you shared this for its very relevant in the noise of today. We all seem to be in a line to be heard rather than hear others.

    This is so true. What can be done with kind and soft words can surely be never achieved by using bad language, shouting or yelling at the top of ones voice. But many a time sadly, this becomes quite difficult to implement and we sadly end up losing our temper :(.

  8. Great meaning to this post 🙂

Love to hear from you :)
