Day 6: Most powerful quote/favourite lines
As the intro to this video says, “Tim Doner is a 17-year-old hyper-polygot who speaks 20 languages. He is the youngest known person in the world with this capability.”
What follows is Doner’s tour through what is the multicultural smorgasbord of New York City. “I think what’s great about living in New York is that you can really practice any language you want.” he says. “This is arguably the most linguistically diverse spot on Earth.” He converses with cab drivers in their native language. He chats with Turkish and Arabic store owners. “I feel that by studying languages, by looking at what’s old and what’s new, you get a greater appreciation for society’s values and its entire history.”

And in return be comforted by soft wings

What a riddle of a birthday gift!

And made me guess.
It comes from cactustopia
Or so she said
Such a place doesn’t exist
Or does it?

I’d never seen cactustopia
Which continent is it?
Apparently it’s so obvious she won’t tell me.
I didn’t need a map.
I needed that present
she held behind her back with a wicked smile,
which, as I’d guessed, hid an ordinary cactus.
