HER WISE IMPERFECTIONS

I know the Queen’s Own Good English. I almost never use it.
I’m like Shakespeare – not only is perfect English perfectly boring as hell, but no-one will ever remember a word of it except in textbooks. And nobody ever remembers textbooks.
There is no poetry in perfect English. I love the English language, but not for her odd perfections, it is her constant and willful imperfections that make her beautiful, witty, and wise.

DO YOU KNOW ENGLISH?
