'I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope
For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love,
For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith
But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:
So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.'

TS Eliot, East Coker

Classicist, cynic and critic. Sane but unhappy about it. An idealist whose rose-colored glasses have been removed, snapped in two and stomped into the ground, immediately improving her vision.

Fighting the good fight against bad grammar, bad characterisation and bad writing in general in the name of the Oxford English Dictionary. William Topaz McGonagall must never be allowed to rise again - one 'Tay Bridge Disaster' was more than enough.

Mashkar le gadjende leski shib si le Romeski zor.

'HUMANITY, n.
The human race, collectively, exclusive of the anthropoid poets. '

Ambrose Bierce, 'The Devil's Dictionary'
