‘And if you are listening in the silence of the night, you will hear them say in silence:
‘Our God, who is our winged self, it is Your will that works in our desires.
It is because of Your urge in us that our nights, whose are Yours, want to bask in days, whose are Yours as well.
We can ask you nothing, because You already know our needs, before they are born in us.
You are what we need; and whilst giving more of Yourself, You give us everything.’
– Gibran. K. 1923. De Profeet [The Prophet] Den Haag, The Netherlands: Mirananda (2000) p. 65-66
