Hamilton Strikes Again

My Hamilton obsession strikes again. Carvens Lissant was the guest on The Hamilcast and, among the many riveting things he said, this gem was one. "I was in awe of people who had dexterity in language."

What a quote! He was speaking as a poet, as a manipulator of words, as someone who pays attention to how others use words to communicate their point. It has stuck with me. I may need to put it up next to my desk.

  1. Thanks for the quote. Great for my ESL students! They need every reminder of how good it is to know more than one language, to understand what an asset that is.
