“ Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights. But your ears thirst for the sound of your heart's knowledge.

You would know in words that which you have always known in thought. You would touch with your fingers the naked body of your dreams. ”

- 'The Prophet' by Khalil Gibran
