Once You Have Met a True Human Being

Once you have met a True Human Being, let him not disappear from the horizon of your Heart.

– Rumi

Ask your students to explain what this quotation means. Ask them to define what Rumi meant by a “true human being.”  Why do they think this picture was chosen to accompany this quotation? Do they agree with the choice of image? Why or why not? 

What do your students know about Rumi? Locate where he was from on the map. When did he live? What was the world like during Rumi’s lifetime?

Is there anyone your students could name as an example of a “true human being? Who and why?
