MonsterAudaces Fortunam Juvat

Another bird said:'Is audacity allowable before such majesty? One needs audacity to conquer fear- But is it right in His exalted sphere?"
The hoopoe answers him

The Hoopoe said: 'Those who are worthy reach
A subtle understanding none can teach; They guard the secrets of our glorious king And threfore are not kept from anything- But how could one who knows such secrets be Convicted of the least audacity? (The ignorant, it's true, can never share The secrets of our king.) He has no certain knowledge of the Way And what seems rudeness is but loving play. - Farid Ud-Din Attar
