Bir Dil Bir Insan

“Bir dil bir insan” is a Turkish proverb meaning “one language, one human” and implying that when you learn a second language you become two humans.

Extrapolating from this affirms my belief that if we share one language we begin to live as One, as a single expression of unified humanity. When we begin to live as a single expression of unified humanity we begin to move toward Understanding, where differences are no longer problems but expressions of diversity, opportunities to live a vibrant life in harmony with one another.

UPDATE
When i posted this, auto-correct got one by me and changed “insane” to “insane” … which wouldn’t be the first time insanity was aligned with the concept of humanity.
