... Can't Be Said ...

Without ever having found the exact words to suit me, I've long tried to describe a certain conviction of mine that is -- without doubt -- shared with numberless others.

I've now found those words -- beautifully yet briefly expressed in an excellent and intelligent novel, The Lion's Heart, by Dena Hunt:

" 'Art exists because there are some things that can't be said any other way.' "

These words come from the mouth of the novel's protagonist, the director of an art gallery.  

I'm indebted to Dena Hunt!
