Philosophy #103

“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.”
Plato

plato2-1

This quote reminds me why I began to write poems. Plato was probably experiencing the symptoms of love when he thought about it.
“Every heart sings a song” Was he trying to suggest that each heart is the same yet different? Was he implying that life molds the tune and the rhythm of our own song? What about when we analyze the other part of the sentence “…..a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back” now that piece changes the sentence completely. In a sense, was he trying to imply that we are never complete till we have another human being that feels the same rhythm of our song (life)? Was he hinting that in order to be, to feel, fully complete, we need another to understand our love? (So many questions in just one sentence)

“Those who wish to sing always find a song.” Could he had meant that every human being that is trying to be alive have or find a reason to exist (to sing) A love, a passion that can push them day in and day out? Perhaps, those who wish to sing need another heart in their lives, a new inspiration?

This line is the most profound for me; “At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.” Was he suggesting that we all find our purpose, our a reason to be (to sing) when we find true love, the love of another or the love in the things we truly like to do? Did he mean that we all are poets and that our nature is to talk with our emotions, with our feelings as with our intellect?

In essence “Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.” Plato was insinuating to us that we are born incomplete till we find our other half (in my case another whole) that will inspire us to sing (live) respecting our thoughts, emotions? Perhaps.

Indeed, we are all poets.
Oh!!! Plato even from the grave you continue to arouse our minds. In a time of non thinkers you continue screaming in the echoes of the past “KNOW THYSELF”

Leave your thoughts about this quote, I am intrigued to read how you perceive this quote or how you can dissect it further. Thank you and don’t forget to think, for a thing will be just a thing, until you think beyond that thing.

En Español

“Cada corazón canta una canción, incompleta, hasta que otro corazón susurra atrás. Aquellos que desean cantar siempre encuentran una canción. Con el toque de un amante, todo el mundo se convierte en poeta.
Platón

plato2-1

Esta cita me recuerda por qué empecé a escribir poemas. Probablemente, Platón experimentaba los síntomas del amor cuando pensaba en ello.
“Cada corazón canta una canción” ¿Estaba tratando de sugerir que cada corazón es el mismo pero diferente? ¿Estaba implicando que la vida moldea la melodía y el ritmo de nuestra propia canción? Qué pasa cuando analizamos la otra parte de la frase “… ..una canción, incompleta, hasta que otro corazón susurra atrás” ahora esta pieza cambia la frase por completo. En cierto sentido, ¿estaba tratando de insinuar que nunca estamos completos hasta que tengamos otro ser humano que siente el mismo ritmo de nuestra canción (la vida)? ¿Estaba insinuando que para ser, para sentirse completos, necesitamos que otro entienda nuestro amor? (Tantas preguntas en una sola oración)

“Aquellos que desean cantar siempre encuentran una canción.” ¿Podría haber querido decir que todo ser humano que está tratando de estar vivo tiene o encuentra una razón para existir (cantar)? Un amor, una pasión que puede empujarlos día a día ¿fuera? Quizás, aquellos que desean cantar necesitan otro corazón en sus vidas, ¿una nueva inspiración?

Esta línea es la más profunda para mí; “Al toque de un amante, todo el mundo se convierte en un poeta.” ¿Estaba sugiriendo que todos encontramos nuestro propósito, nuestra razón de ser (cantar) cuando encontramos el amor verdadero, el amor de otro o el amor en las cosas que nosotros Realmente nos gusta hacer? ¿Quiere decir que todos somos poetas y que nuestra naturaleza es hablar con nuestras emociones, con nuestros sentimientos como con nuestro intelecto?

En esencia “Cada corazón canta una canción, incompleta, hasta que otro corazón susurra atrás. Aquellos que desean cantar siempre encuentran una canción. Con el toque de un amante, todo el mundo se convierte en un poeta.” Platón nos insinuaba que nacemos incompletos hasta que encontramos nuestra otra mitad (en mi caso otra persona completa) que nos inspirará a cantar respetando nuestros pensamientos, emociones ? Quizás.

De hecho, todos somos poetas.
¡¡¡Oh!!! Platón incluso de la tumba continúan despertando nuestras mentes. En un tiempo de no pensadores continúas gritando en los ecos del pasado “CONOZCA TU MISMO”

Deje tus pensamientos sobre esta cita, me intriga leer cómo usted percibe esta cita o cómo usted puede disecarlo más lejos. Gracias y no te olvides de pensar, porque una cosa será sólo una cosa, hasta que pienses más allá de esa cosa.

  1. Love this.
    Yes we all have ‘that one person’ who understands us better than anyone else.

    Some find that person are are living their ‘happily ever after’ as we speak. Their hearts sing to each other and everyone around them can tell.

    Some have yet to find that person. Searching and hoping. Their hearts sing, but also cries for there is no one yet to sing back. Their songs are both beautiful and full of sadness.

    Some have found that person but because of timing are not able to be together as they are tied to other people. Their song is both beautiful and agonizing. Their hearts are in turmoil.

  2. Outstanding! Nowadays people rarely think or feel like that.
    I feel people doesn’t wants to experience that or simply force themselves not to want another heart to whisper back. The world is full of people and thoughts that are in charge of destroying this.

    However, I agree with you, there’s a soul that responds or fits into our song. It depends on how confident and open you are, and obviously on how mature and responsible you are to allow or choose the other soul-singer.
    I love the way you emphasize respecting our thoughts and emotions, for me it is fundamental.

    Best Regards!

  3. Lovely quote and a beautiful interpretation!
    Perhaps, the ‘heart’ or the ‘touch of the lover’ need not be a person alone but thoughts and ideas that create a flame of passion within us that yearns to burn bright.

  4. Lovely quote and beautiful interpretation!
    Perhaps the ‘heart’ or the ‘touch of the lover’ refers not to a person alone but to thoughts and ideas that ignite a flame of passion within us that yearns to burn bright and sing its songs.
