Quote of the Week

"I was serious about Spanish. I was never serious about French. Sure, I will still exchange nasty remarks with a Paris taxi driver now and again. But my public announcement that, more or less as a matter of policy, I do not use verbs in French was widely taken as an acknowledgement that I could no longer be considered a diligent student of the language. I never made a systematic attempt at Italian, and I have simply ignored German. Spanish is my foreign language."
