    I think I know what that means. But I'll wait to see what others say first.

    Just in case. 😀

    Man, I was going to start a thread this morning and you two came along and started at least three. 4 if you include divegeester.
    Great. I'll just have to wait until you christians thrash out these...er..threads.

    Word. Wooooord.
    you guys come along and start dribbling this stuff. A quote with no refrences (as to why you started an op with it).
    Funny how you slam taco and vishva for doing the same thing.
    The forum knows you have an agenda, Freaky, so if you want people to respond intelligently, please tell us why you started this thread.

    Yeah, I'm just a prolific poster of threads, ain't I? Lessee... going back ten pages of threads on this forum and you'll see that I've started a shocking eleven topics during that time. Really: where do I find the time? I mean, couldn't I have mustered even a modicum of restraint as evidenced by your initiation of ten posts over the course of those same ten pages?

    And I truly don't know how a soul can get a word in edgewise, given my non-stop chatter. Why, since September of this year, I've held forth some 435 times! No wonder my wife says I have no time for her! Again, had I used your sterling example of minimalism, my output would have been a paltry 525 in the same time.

    How terrifically rude of me! And, to add insult to injury, I continue to put forth my painfully obvious agenda of such offense-causing drivel as Christianity. What an oaf am I. Woe is me.

    I was looking at it more from the standpoint of Leonard Cohen. Strikes me like something he might have said.

    Why don't you try to have an original thought instead of tearing down the thoughts of others?

    For those posting in this forum who have the intelligence to read and comprehend the body of topics plastered in here, it is obvious from reading yours that you have the propensity to laud those you agree with and degrade those you don't.

    You are only equipped to hurl insult against those you disagree with instead of engaging in a meaningful discussion of the topic of the thread. But you are ready to add to that which is posted by those who post some of the most unsubstantiated and meaningless drivel I ever read.

    And it is still even more obvious that you fail to read what is posted by those you disagree with because of your obvious and blatant biases and prejudices. Thus your insults.

    But this I would add. After reading you in this forum since you started, you have improved in the area of grammar and syntax. keep trying to learn karoly.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I think what Charles Péguy means is that some dig deep to try to use words in a way that best conveys what he means. It can be an agonising experience to give meaning and purpose to what one writes by the process of word selection.

    On the other hand, some write by rote. They parrot and mimic, but have no original ideas.

    I like that. I think he really gets to the underlying reality of the process--- not just of writing, but of life: that which is borne of ease (typically) carries little to no weight or value.

    Dunno for sure, Josephw. May possibly be spelled Bro, Mister, Country Gent,

    Governor, Knight, Lord, Master, Monsieur, Your Honour or Excellency. 😀
