If our words shape our thinking, then looking at this elegant Arabic page from a manuscript of the Quran makes me appreciate how important our basic language is in bridging our understanding of one another.

There are roughly 300 million Arabic speakers in the world.  Pretty close to the population of the U.S. (313 million).

How does our vocabulary shape the way we think?

How would our thinking change if we could speak each other’s language?
