Kahlil Gibran
“نحن نتكلم عندما توصد أمامنا أبواب السلام عن افكارنا ، وعندما نعجز عن الوصول لحالة السكون في وحدة قلوبنا ، نتحول لنستولي على شفاهنا ، فالصوت يلهينا ويسلينا ، وفي الكثير من كلامنا يكاد فكرنا ينفجر من الألم والكآبة ، لأن الفكر طائر من طيور الفضاء ن يمكنه ان يبسط جناحيه في قفص الألفاظ ، ولكنه لا يستطيع أن يطير”
جبران خليل جبران, The Prophet
