Radiohead - Nude

"Language is a weird and wonderful thing. You jump in head-first, once you begin to read, even when you no longer need a dictionary, or when you feel a word's meaning by its sound, like a blind man touching the edge of a coin. But some of the words you might use, the big ones - love, happiness, sorrow - these can remain abstract for years, even if you don't know it.

And then one day, something will happen, something will get you - or someone will touch you suddenly, like a thorn coming by chance under your sleeve to graze your skin; and then you are changed, and you find you have to go back to your vocabulary, and think. You have to redefine the word 'beautiful', because everything is new, and even though you thought you knew where you were before, your emotional map is upside down. And it feels glorious."

-The Torture Garden
