O how wonderful is the human voice! It is indeed the organ of the soul. The intellect of man sits enshrined visibly upon his forehead and in his eye; and the heart of man is written upon his countenance. But the soul reveals itself in the voice only, as God revealed himself to the prophet in the still small voice, and in a voice from the Burning Bush. The soul of man is audible, not visible. A sound alone betrays the flowing of the eternal fountain invisible to man.

    كم هو رائع الصوت البشري! هو في الواقع عضو الروح. يجلس فكر الإنسان على جبهته وفي عينه ؛ وقلب الإنسان مكتوب على وجهه. لكن الروح تكشف عن نفسها في الصوت فقط ، كما كشف الله للنبي بصوت لا يزال صغيرًا ، وبصوت من الأدغال المحترقة. روح الإنسان مسموعة وغير مرئية. الصوت وحده يخون تدفق النافورة الأبدية غير المرئية للإنسان.
