The heart surges

From time to time, 

when a piece of music no one has ever written, 

or a painting no one has ever painted, 

or something else impossible to predict, fathom, or yet describe takes place, 

a new feeling enters the world.

And then, for the millionth time in the history of feeling, 

the heart surges, and absorbs the impact."

Nicole Krauss (The History of Love)
