„Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.“

„One of the historians of Darranda said: To learn a belief without belief is to sing a song without the tune.“

—  Ursula K. Le Guin American writer 1929
Context: One of the historians of Darranda said: To learn a belief without belief is to sing a song without the tune. A yielding, an obedience, a willingness to accept these notes as the right notes, this pattern as the true pattern, is the essential gesture of performance, translation, and understanding. The gesture need not be permanent, a lasting posture of the mind or heart, yet it is not false. It is more than the suspension of disbelief needed to watch a play, yet less than the conversion. It is a position, a posture in the dance. Ch. 4, §3 (pp. 90–91)

„There are melodies that must have words... and melodies that sing themselves without words.“

—  Isaac Leib Peretz Yiddish language author and playwright 1852 - 1915
Context: There are melodies that must have words... and melodies that sing themselves without words. The latter are of a higher grade. But these, too, depend on a voice and lips,... hence are not yet altogether pure, not yet genuine spirit. Genuine melody sings itself without a voice. It sings inside, within the heart, in man's very entrails! Mekubolim, 1906. Alle Verk, vi. 53.
