The singer alone does not make a song, there has to be one who hears […]
Only when waves fall on the shore do they make a harmonious sound;
Only when breezes shake the woods do we hear a rustling in the leaves.
Only from a marriage of two forces does music arise in the world.
Where there is no love, where listeners are dumb, there never can be song.
Rabindranath Tagore (1910). Broken Song.
