Come, come, whoever you are.
Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving.
It doesn’t matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vow a hundred times.
Come, yet again, come, come.

–Jalal al-Din Rumi (1207-1273)
from his collected writings, FIHI MA FIHI (literally "It Is What It Is")
