I don't care that much about rote memorization. An old boyfriend of mine used to get into lacerating arguments with his parents over facts, and I used to watch on in mute astonishment. How could anyone actually argue about something that could be looked up?
Je schwächer das Argument, desto stärker die Worte.
Argument is conclusive, but it does not remove doubt.
Save a boyfriend for a rainy day - and another, in case it doesn't rain.
