Thank you for sharing this beautiful quote. You are right that this is not off-[the]topic[of translation], though, and after a brief hesitation (as to whether the Lighter Side would be more appropriate) I've decided to move it here, to Translation Theory and Practice. Please let us know if you have a better idea.
I would not have thought of putting it there myself because it has to do with the "art" of translation rather than theory and practice but it's no problem. This forum is as good as any, as long as it resonates with people or makes them think.
