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

~Kahlil Gibran

I can't say I agree with Mr Gibran whole heartedly. Far too many quotes which suggest that our heart knows everything, far too many people think that way and most, unlike Mr Gibran, grow satisfied by the same. Well a plan without implementation does not bring about results.
Or maybe thats what Mr Gibran wants to say too :)

I think what Mr. Gibran is saying is that answers to our questions, solutions to our confusions will come from within us.
I think, he does not want us to depend on any power outside us - neither family, nor friends, nor collegues, nor governments, nor God (if you consider god to be sitting up in the sky) - to help us find what we are searching for.

wat say u? :)

We all are I think familiar to certain degrees the 'thirst' talked about here.

It is an optimistic note - that the knowledge exists, and it exists in silence (can silence be a subset of sounds or do you think it is the other way round - as it is silence that contains the knowledge?) and it is known by our own self.
