Quote
"Let mystery have its place in you; do not be always turning up your whole soil with the plowshare of self–examination, but leave a little fallow corner in your heart ready for any seed the winds may bring, and reserve a nook of shadow for the passing bird; keep a place in your heart for the unexpected guests, an altar for the unknown God. Then if a bird sings among your branches, do not be too eager to tame it. If you are conscious of something new – thought or feeling, wakening in the depths of your being – do not be in a hurry to let in light upon it, to look at it; let the springing germ have the protection of being forgotten, hedge it round with quiet, and do not break in upon its darkness; let it take shape and grow, and not a word of your happiness to any one! Sacred work of nature as it is, all conception should be enwrapped by the triple veil of modesty, silence and night."

Henri–Frédéric Amiel

I want to spend a day in the mind of Neil Gaiman, honestly. 

You really don’t. It’s weird in here. Also I think that thing over there in the corner of my mind is moving.

Don’t look. Maybe it won’t see us.

"And I remember when I got screentested with this character they actually flew me to Los Angeles to meet with Travis - Travis got cast probably a week before me - and they wanted a chemistry read with me and him. And I called up my agent and I’m like ‘What does that mean?’ and they were like ‘They just want to see if you have chemistry’ and I’m like ‘Okay’. And so we had this scene where I’m lying in bed with him and I tell him that I want to ride him like a bull. And it’s written as that I want to ride him like a bull, like a wild bull - which are my lines, which are [laughs] so awkward to say. And I remember I was in the office and all the executives in suits were like, lined up and I’m like ‘Okay, they want chemistry. Screw it’. So I like, grabbed the back of his neck [acts out the movement] and I just laid one on him and totally, um, gave him a big, fat smooch. [Laughs.] And if they wanted chemistry, they probably got it."

"The depth of isolation in the ghetto is also evident in black speech patterns, which have evolved steadily away from Standard American English. Because of their intense social isolation, many ghetto residents have come to speak a language that is increasingly remote from that spoken by American whites. Black street speech, or more formally, Black English Vernacular, has its roots in the West Indian creole and Scots-Irish dialects of the eighteenth century. As linguists have shown, it is by no means a “degenerate,” or “illogical” version of Standard American English; rather, it constitutes a complex, rich, and expressive language in its own right, with a consistent grammar, pronunciation, and lexicon all its own."

Douglas Massey and Nancy A. Denton, Chapter 6: “The Perpetuation of the Underclass,” p. 162 (American apartheid: segregation and the making of the underclass)

As linguists have shown, it is by no means a “degenerate,” or “illogical” version of Standard American English; rather, it constitutes a complex, rich, and expressive language in its own right, with a consistent grammar, pronunciation, and lexicon all its own.
