"Language is a cracked kettle on which we beat out tunes for bears to dance to, while all the time we long to move the stars to pity.” Gustave Flaubert wrote these lines in his magnum opus "Madame Bovary".

Not all feelings and thoughts can be captured perfectly in words. Beauty transcends words. We always feel it when we use phrases like we are running out of adjectives, etc.
