In generosity and helping others be like a river.
In compassion and grace be like the sun.
In concealing others' faults be like the night.
In anger and fury be like the dead.
In modesty and humility be like earth.
In tolerance be like the sea.
Either appear as you are or be as you look.          
                   --Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi, 1207-1273
