Jalal al-Din Rumi Quote – “A tailor needs a torn garment to practice his expertise…”

An empty mirror and your worst destructive habits,
when they are held up to each other,
that’s when the real making begins.
That’s what art and crafting are.

A tailor needs a torn garment to practice his expertise.
The trunks of trees must be cut and cut again
so they can be used for fine carpentry.

Jalal al-Din Rumi (1207 – 1273)
