“Many people die of thirst but the Irish are born with one.”

On Sea-Sickness

On Sex

    I hope that you will allow me to comment on Spike’s view of Esperanto. Not many people know that Esperanto has native speakers. See:
    It was never planned that way, but it happened, and I have met about a dozen native speakers of the planned language over the years.

    By the way, over 34,000 people have signed on for the new (beta) Duolingo Esperanto course in just three weeks.
