Great is language….it is the mightiest of sciences,
It is the fulness and color and form and diversity of the
earth….and of men and women….and of all
qualities and processes;
It is greater than wealth….it is greater than buildings or
ships or religions or paintings or music.
Let Walt Whitman bring in 2020.
Happy New Year!
