Fred, 

If you can, please see my Facebook thread on this beginning 7 April. 

Howard G. Goldberg (ex-Times, HGGoldberg at GMail.com) remembers hearing John Ciardi “say much the same thing at Rutgers in 1952”.

Joan Walsh Anglund wrote "“A bird does not sing because he has an answer. He
sings because he has a song.” in a 1967 book.  Does anyone know of any similar
sayings that appeared before 1967?
