Sing it!

“I wondered whether music might not be the unique example of what might have been—if the invention of language, and the formation of words, the analysis of ideas had not intervened—the means of communications between souls. It is like a possibility that has come to nothing; humanity has developed along other lines, those of spoken and written language.” – Marcel Proust, The Captive (trans. Moncrieff and Kilmartin)
