43                    
The fish in the water is silent, the animal on the earth is noisy, the bird in the air is singing.
But Man has in him the silence of the sea, the noise of the earth and the music of the air.

Shadow, with her veil drawn, follows Light in secret meekness, with her silent steps of love.

Man does not reveal himself in his history, he struggles up through it.
人类没在他的历史中显露自己。他只是在历史中艰难前行。

While the glass lamp rebukes the earthen for calling it cousin the moon rises, and the glass lamp, with a bland smile, calls her,---My dear, dear sister.

Like the meeting of the seagulls and the waves we meet and come near.
The seagulls fly off, the waves roll away and we depart.

it is enough for the thirsty.
