Life leads the thoughtful man on a path of many windings.
Now the course is checked, now it runs straight again.
Here the winged thoughts may pour freely forth in words,
There the heavy burdon of knowledge must be shut away in silence.
But when two people are at one in their inmost hearts,
They shatter even the strength of iron and bronze.
And when two people understand each other in their inmost hearts,
Their words are sweet and strong, like the fragrance of orchids.
