It is the belief of Kappa Kappa Psi, honorary music fraternity that "Music is a universal language and truly the greatest of the arts."

True, love could be though of as a universal language, but even love must be expressed through some medium, does it not? Even the word "love" doesn't translate into every language. Body language may express some emotions, but not all emotions are easily expressed in that manner. Every emotion can be expressed through music. Happiness, anger, sorrow, and even love all have their place in music.

Take, for example, Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky. This ballet represents a fertility rite, during which a girl is sacrified. Listening to this piece of music invokes emotions deep inside of me. It angers me. If I'm in a bad mood, I can not listen to this song, or I become extremely depressed.

You don't need to understand Russian, to understand what Stravinsky meant to portray in this ballet.
