If you want to express outright feelings, talk Italian. Italy gave us the opera.

If you want to express mixed feelings, or if you need to explore what your feelings are, talk French. France gave us Stendhal.

If you want to express your thoughts, talk German. Germany gave us Nietzsche.

If you want to express your dreams, talk Swedish. Sweden gave us Ingmar Bergman.

If you want some action, talk English. Shakespeare!
