  1. From what I’ve read so far, it appears that we are brothers of a kindred spirit. Kudos for this website my good man. You’ll have to forgive my accolade for barely being polysyllabic;-)

    RG: Thanks, Lawrence. Some of the best words have only one syllable.

  2. Fantastic. I just did a post on words and your site certainly was a big inspiration!


  3. Here are some lines from T.S. Eliot:

    “Ridiculous the waste sad time.”

    “You are the music while the music lasts.”

    “We cannot revive old factions
    We cannot restore old policies
    Or follow an antique drum.”

    “History is a pattern
    Of timeless moments.”
