Two stream lines cannot cross each other. Explain Why?

The tangent at any point on the streamline gives the direction of flow of liquid molecules at that point. If in case, two streamlines cross each other, then it would mean that the liquid molecule can have different velocities along two different directions, which is against the definition of streamline motion. Hence, two streamlines cannot cross each other.
