Common language

“[…] I thought to myself in amazement that people do not talk the same language, unlike sparrows, or chaffinches who sing alike everywhere.

We, the people, speak different languages, and only our laughter and our tears mean the same thing and are understood by all.”

My translation from Choucas, by Sophie Nalkowska.
