Language, Literature & Performing Arts

Many of the greatest delights in life come from language, literature, and the performing arts.

You probably already know that fact. You've spoken another language – perhaps only a few words – and you realized that it opened you up to other people and cultures. You've read something compelling that changed your life. It could have been a novel, or a poem, or even an elegantly crafted letter. And you've acted in a theatrical production or three, played a musical instrument, and written a few lines yourself.
