"You have to not know they are flowers and stones and rivers To talk about their sentiments. To talk of the souls of stones, flowers and rivers, Is to talk about yourself and your false thoughts. Thanks be to God that stones are just stones, And that rivers are nothing but rivers, And that flowers are merely flowers."
"Eh preciso nao saber o que sao flores e pedras e rios Para falar dos sentimentos deles. Falar da alma das pedras, das flores, dos rios, Nao falar de si proprio e dos seus falsos pensamentos. Gracas a Deus que as pedras sao soh pedras, E que os rios nao sao senao rios, E que as flores sao apenas flores."
