Some verses by Bulle Shah

parh parh ilm qitaban da.. tu naan rakh lya qazi
hath wich phar ke talwaran.. tu naan rakh lya ghazi
makke madine tu phir ayan.. tu naan rakh lya hajji
we bulya tu ki haasil kita.. je yaar na rakhya razi

.

.

Read a book, and you may be called wise;
Wield a sword; be a warrior in the world’s eyes;
A Haji you are if to Mecca and Medina you go;
But, Bulle, all of it is worthless, you should know,
If unkind you are to your friend and fellow.
