Tunes For Bears To Dance To

Language belongs to everybody.
There's almost nothing I can (or could) say that isn't echoed by someone somewhere at some time or other.
That doesn't mean what I say has no validity or meaning for me, however.

Like she said it's easy to make a knee-jerk reaction, or be upset because it seems that someone's aping something you've already done.
If you think about it, everything's already been done, so I don't worry about it."

Human language is like a cracked kettle
On which we beat out tunes for bears to dance to,
When all the time we are longing
To move the stars to pity."

--Gustave Flaubert
