Every man's an island

and i know that's not the original quotation but i remain unconvinced~in the end we're all alone. I really don't mean to sound pessimistic here, just realistic~isn't that how it goes, we can never convince another person of our opinion or truly make them see our side of things no matter how hard we try or how long we talk and no one can really get inside our heads. And we always die alone. I'm not sure what my point here is and i'm really not trying to be cynical or depressed~i guess we can just express ourselves to the best of our ability, put it out there in the world and leave it at that.
just a thought...
"I want to learn how to make translations from the languages nobody knows, nobody speaks. The translations will not be as good as the originals, but then they never are."
