   Can't go wrong with RUMI!
RUMI - I have been looking for something like this, a daily dose of inspiration. There is a wonderful introduction to Love Religion, Wild Soulbooks and What Is that takes the book into context. This is a great companion book to keep nearby - I keep mine by the bed so that I can read a poem before I get started in the morning.

   Good, just not what I was looking for
Not exactly the concept of quotes and such that I was looking for this sort of fell flat for me. I still find bits to read that speak to me at the end or beginning of a yoga class, but I also think that this book needs to take the method that this book finds to find a final home.

   Needed on Audible synced with Kindle
Yesterday, I've learned a lot. Rumi's poetry and stories are more audio. While I can re-listen to these and am, this book would be a delightful addition because it is like spiritual exercise, something we all need, but more than that, it is mental food. It is soul food. Only a male reader is it by me a wish.
