شمع اور شاعر (The Candle & the Poet) | Iqbal

Gone is the courageous Love, gone is the sublime thinking
In your assembly neither the insane nor the sages remain
Gone is that burning of Love, gone is that heart’s pathos
What good it is if the moths round the candle did remain?

The problem with English is this: You usually can’t open your mouth and it comes out just like that—first you have to think what you want to say. Then you have to find the words. Then you have to carefully arrange those words in your head. Then you have to say the words quietly to yourself, to make sure you got them okay. And finally, the last step, which is to say the words out loud and have them sound just right.
But then because you have to do all this, when you get to the final step, something strange has happened to you and you speak the way a drunk walks. And, because you are speaking like falling, it’s as if you are an idiot, when the truth is that it’s the language and the whole process that’s messed up. And then the problem with those who speak only English is this: they don’t know how to listen; they are busy looking at your falling instead of paying attention to what you are saying.

I finished reading this some time ago and since then I was trying to write something coherent and meaningful. I couldn’t. Go, find it, read it, that’s all I have to say.

In which Bale sweeps past Bartra to score the winning goal in the Final Copa match versus Barcelona. And Ronaldo goes crazy from his seat.
