    Exclamation help! need spanish translation of plato's quote!!!

    How would you translate this quote?

    music gives soul to the universe
    wings to the mind
    flight to the imagination
    and life to everything

    I thought it would be:
    la música le da alma al universo
    alas a la mente
    vuelo a la imaginación
    y vida a todo

    It's actually very urgent and I'm confused because I've been getting different translations from other sources. Do I need to include the el/la/las/los in front of every noun? I just want the most grammatically correct and simple translation. Gracias por su tiempo!

    I think the way you translated is perfect Debby.

    Yea, Debby. Good job! that's a great translation. It sounds better if you say 'la música, al universo, la mente and la imaginación'. Very natural.
