Fables of Sheikh Saadi

Saadi Shirazi or Sheikh Saadi was a famous Perisan poet.  He came from a poor background but studied and travelled for many years throughout the middle east. He also experienced and witnessed much suffering during his life. 

His poem Bani Adam can be translated as

"The sons of Adam are limbs of one body

Of the same essence created

When circumstances experiences pain

The other parts also feel the same

If you're unbothered at other's grief

Maybe you shouldn't be called a human"
