Language study is a route to maturity. Indeed, in language study as in life, if a person is the same today as he was yesterday, it would be an act of mercy to pronounce him dead and to place him in a coffin, rather than in a classroom.
– John A. RassiasRate it:
Language, the machine of the poet, is best fitted for his purpose in its rudest state. Nations, like individuals, first perceive, and then abstract. They advance from particular images to general terms. Hence the vocabulary of an enlightened society is philosophical, that of a half-civilized people is poetical.

Curiosamente los mismos tres aspectos se presentan en la filosofía hindú, que se manifiesta como "Trimurti" o "trinidad" que comprende brahma señor (generación), vishnu señor (organización), y Mahesh señor (destrucción del mal). Hay una semejanza asombrosa en los procesos de pensamiento desde el este y el oeste. Y eso es verdaderamente fascinante!

Latent in every man is a venom of amazing bitterness, a black resentment; something that curses and loathes life, a feeling of being trapped, of having trusted and been fooled, of being the helpless prey of impotent rage, blind surrender, the victim of a savage, ruthless power that gives and takes away, enlists a man, and crowning injury inflicts upon him the humiliation of feeling sorry for himself.
– Paul ValéryRate it:
