Because I am a storyteller I live by words. Perhaps music is a purer art form. It may be that when we communicate with life on another planet, it will be through music, not through language or words.

-Madeleine L’Engle (US novelist)


  1. I love, love, love, love Madeleine L’Engle. Good quote!

    I’m with you, Nina. I hope you’ve read her book on faith and the arts. (Walking on Water)

  3. Yes, Walking on Water is a great book. I also like “A Circle of Quiet” and “Madeleine L’Engle Herself: Reflections on a Writing Life.” She has so much wisdom to offer on faith and creativity.
