I went to my doctor, said, "Hey, Zein al-Din,

Please measure my pulse and check my urine."

"It's bad, he said, "Your bile is mixed with insanity."

"That's fine," I said, "That's fine, so let it be."

#1479, from Rumi's Kolliyaat-e Shams-e Tabrizi
Edited by Badiozzaman Forouzanfar (Tehran, Amir Kabir, 1988).
