Some minds, at some point, discover that they can not make sense of their own predications without attention to grammar, although they do not ordinarily think of what they are doing as an exercise in grammar. - Richard Mitchell
Ordinarily he was insane, but he had lucid moments when he was merely stupid. - Heinrich Heine
