Wordplay hides a key to reality that the dictionary tries in vain to lock inside every free word. —Julio Cortázar, Around the Day in Eighty Worlds


The Greeks understood the mysterious power of the hidden side of things. They bequeathed to us one of the most beautiful words in our language—the word ‘enthusiasm’—en theos—a god within. The grandeur of human actions is measured by the inspiration from which they spring. Happy is he who bears a god within, and who obeys it.

–Louis Pasteur
