There is a magic quality to the human voice which cannot be adequately described with words. One has to hear the voice to know the magic. The importance of the voice cannot be quantified in the development of humanity or the achievements of humanity. It is paramount.
I remember JFK for his voice, and I believed him when he said we would put a man on the moon.
I remember Martin Luther King for his voice, and I still believe in his dream. ..
There are many times you just know that someone loves you, or you love them. Only the human voice has the capability to actually verbally affirm that love.
Use it while you can.
