Subject: things & tanks >>> Re: [Humanist] 35.435: thank | think | thing
Thank you for this. I am much intrigued by the paradox of expressing nothing
through expressing. And Lear and the blindness themes are perfect for stretching
Your message trigged remembrance of an old and odd saying : Might makes Right.
Which has been interpreted as a call to arms but could with proper capitalization
à l’allemande convert
Right Making Makes Might
All the best,
(Hope this reaches you in your prefered font size)
