„This is how Hallaj said, I am God,
and told the truth!“

—  Rumi Iranian poet 1207 - 1273

As quoted in Head and Heart : A Personal Exploration of Science and the Sacred (2002) by Victor Mansfield
Kontext: He says, "There’s nothing left of me.
I’m like a ruby held up to the sunrise.
Is it still a stone, or a world
made of redness? It has no resistance
to sunlight." This is how Hallaj said, I am God,
and told the truth!The ruby and the sunrise are one. Be courageous and discipline yourself.
Completely become hearing and ear, and wear this sun-ruby as an earring.

—  Martin Amis Welsh novelist 1949

Playboy interview (2003)
Kontext: I think it's a very confused culture. On the one hand, no one is better than anyone else; no one is prettier. On the other hand, everyone is completely obsessed by their looks and by how they strike the world. On the one hand, we're all equal; on the other hand, everyone's a superstar. It's all very irrational, like all ideology.
