Language is wine upon the lips.
The English language is nobody's special property. It is the property of the imagination: it is the property of the language itself.
Mother Nature is always speaking. She speaks in a language understood within the peaceful mind of the sincere observer. Leopards, cobras, monkeys, rivers and trees; they all served as my teachers when I lived as a wanderer in the Himalayan foothills.

John F. Kennedy
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
