Be silent, hide yourself,
And conceal your feelings and your dreams.
Let them rise and set
In the depths of your soul,
Silently, like stars in the night;
Contemplate them in admiration, and be silent.
How will the heart express itself?
How will another understand you?
Will he understand what it is you live by?
A thought that is spoken is falsehood;
By stirring up the springs you will cloud them:
Drink of them, and be silent.
Know how to live within yourself:
There is in your soul a whole world
Of mysterious and enchanted thoughts;
They will be drowned by the noise without;
Daylight will drive them away:
Listen to their singing, and be silent.
