MIRZA GALIB

Said:

If thou canst not see the ocean in the water-drop,

nor visualize the whole from each  specific part,

thou hast the seeing eye, the seer’s vision blest;

the toys and trinkets and puppet show of things.

Since sorrow follow joy

As autumn doth the spring,

Man must transcend the joys

Of earth, which sorrows bring.
