Quote of the Day

“Have you ever seen a rostrum from behind? All men and women — if I may make a suggestion — should be familiarized with the rear view of a rostrum before being called upon to gather in front of one. Everyone who has ever taken a good look a at  a rostrum from behind will be immunized ipso facto against any magic practised in any form whatsoever on rostrums.” Gunter Grass, The Tin Drum (Manheim Translation)
