  6. Nobody. Understands. Punctuation. →

    English is a mutt of a language, inheriting ludicrously contradictory spellings and grammars from other languages. The fact that word and whirred are pronounced exactly the same while lead and lead sound different depending on what you mean (unless the former is in the past tense in which case it’s spelled differently and pronounced like the latter) should tell us English is not so much a black tie affair as it is a soccer riot with a body count.

  11. Great paintings, people flock to see them, they draw crowds. They’re reproduced endlessly on coffee mugs and mouse pads and anything you’d like. And I count myself in the following—you can have a lifetime of perfectly sincere museum going where you traipse around enjoying everything and go out and have some lunch. But..if a painting really works down in your heart and changes the way you see, and think, and feel, you don’t think, ‘oh, I love this picture because it’s universal,’ ‘I love this painting because it speaks to all mankind.’ That’s not the reason anyone loves a piece of art. It’s a secret whisper from an alleyway. Psst, you. Hey kid. Yes you.
