When coming to the question of God, I will repeat what I have always said, that to explain God is to dethrone God. God is an ideal, and any ideal, when you analyze that ideal you destroy it. In the East Majnun and Leila are known as Romeo and Juliet in the West. And in the greatest grief of Majnun, who was separated from Leila, someone came to console him and said, "What is Leila? Is she beautiful? What is she? The world is full of beautiful girls. Leila is not worth thinking about!" And Majnun lifted his head and said to him, "In order to see Leila you must have Majnun's eyes."
