Quote of the Day: Communication as a Miracle of Translation

Occasionally when I read, a quote related to intercultural dialogue strikes me as particularly noteworthy for being insightful, concise, beautifully written, and/or original. One example is provided below. Given the translations I have been publishing, not to mention the state of the world these days, it seems particularly apropos.

“Every act of communication is a miracle of translation.” (p. vii)
