Figures of Speech is a collection of over 1,500 quotes (and growing) from famous figures of our past. Giants from the past worthy of our remembrance. Co-authorship is recognized on each speech act (blog post). As these tidbits of romantic tendencies arise, ent-sprechen emerges and the reflection subsides, ephemeral yet less so as we culturally transmit the Logos of learning and all that we value. O sepi to poli is courtesy of Aristotle.
