It feels like it's been forever and a day since I wrote an entry (scheduled quotes don't count). It's certainly not for a lack of things to say. On the contrary, life has been crazy and hectic, and with that, an abundance of things to share. But somehow words seem to fail. Imagine that...the linguist and writer at a loss as to how to frame words, shape memories and thoughts.
So for now, the voice and words of someone else will have to do:
We must never permit the voice of humanity within us to be silenced. It is Man's sympathy with all creatures that first makes him a Man.
