Quote of the Day

"Americans, whose language when talking business is clear and dry, without the slightest ornament, and of such extreme simplicity as often to be vulgar, easily turn bombastic when they attempt a poetic style." - Alexis De Tocqueville, Democracy in America 488 [1840] (J.P. Mayer ed. & George Lawrence trans., 1966)
