“The children of Adam are like the limbs of one another
For they were all created from a single soul.
When the winds of time afflict one limb with pain,
How can the other limbs remain at peace?
You who feel not the pain of others
How dare you call yourself a child of Adam?
How dare you call yourself a human being?”
-Sa’di-yi Shirazi, a 13th century muslim poet. Poem written at the entrance of the Untied nations.
