foreign language

A Quote by Richard David Bach on language, words, foreign language, ideas, spanish, and espagnol

Languages are fluffy big pillows stuffed between nations - what others say is muffled and nearly lost in them, and when we speak their grammar we get feathers in our mouth.  It's worth it.  What pleasure to phrase an idea, even in child's words, slowly, and sail it across the gulf in another language to a different-speaking human being!

Richard Bach (1936 -)
