'Our eyes do not deceive. Irrespective of where you are from, what language you speak or whether you can be understood our eyes always see the real emotion of people. Sorrow, joy, love, excitement, wonder, anger and fear are universal. You may walk the streets of any city in the world not understand a word another says but your eyes understand the conversation. To me this is more beautiful than the words being said because it requires us to truly witness another person's emotions and regard them first. It also means our eyes nor our intuition will fail us. I wonder if more people who spoke the same language really looked at each other's faces and their body language while they spoke, perhaps the universal emotions of others wouldn't be so easily misinterpreted.'
