Plunge into the Sea
Shiblî sought Junayd as a teacher and said to him, “You are recommended as an expert on pearls (enlightenment and wisdom), either give me one, or sell one to me.”
“If I sell you one, you will not have the price of it, and if I give you one, having so easily come by it you will not realize its value,” Junayd replied. “Do like me; plunge head-first into this Sea, and if you wait patiently you will obtain your pearl”.
