|From Salman, singer sweet, this subtle point I know:|
That world is wide enough for those who courage show.
|A man can live without the light of science and art;|
But needs hawk’s zeal for quest and tiger’s reckless heart.
|Desist from imitation of peacock and nightingale:|
The one is only hue, the other chant and wail.
Translated by: Syed Akbar Ali Shah
