Feed your Soul!
Bread feeds the body, indeed, but flowers feed also the soul.
This quotation caught my eye because
- it shows how poetic the Koran can be. Often we associate the Koran with the oppression of women, with a medieval way of doing justice or with violence against the “Infidels”. “Flowers feed also the soul” – when I read that I see a green oasis in the desert, with flowers in all kinds of colors. Imagine the caravanes coming in from the desert, where there’s only one color- the color of the sand and the sun and the cloudless sky.
- it points out that we have to nourish our souls, too. We have to do the things which keep our body alive, the necessary things. But while doing that we often forget to feed our souls–by doing such things like looking at flowers, listening to the beauty of music, talking to our loved ones.
