Protect Yourself

Sometimes it is necessary to protect yourself! Nowadays you do things differently than in the Middle Ages. I like to use something more stringent linguistic description as wall against unreasonable demands.

  1. A majestic shot, Frizz, and words for armour, that’s fighting talk, linguistically speaking 🙂


    • I liked the aphorism of Kurt Tucholsky: “The language is a weapon, keep it sharp!” And as for linguistic: I like Noam Chomsky and the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein:
      “One can easily imagine a language consisting only of orders and messages in battle, or a language consisting only of questions and an expression of affirmation and negation. And countless others. To imagine a language means to imagine a life form.“


      • I think you have given me much to think over this Saturday morning, Frizz. And yes, keeping one’s words sharp – sometimes it’s a struggle 🙂


        • and the first blogger of all, dear Tish, Michel de Montaigne, liked already to live like we live, surrounded by our books:
          Montaigne: “My library is in the third story of a tower; on the first is my chapel, on the second a bedroom with ante-chambers, where I often lie to be alone; and above it there is a great wardrobe. Adjoining my library is a very neat little room, in which a fire can be laid in winter, and which is pleasantly lighted by a window…” Michel de Montaigne (1533 – 1592)


          • Oh yes, Montaigne. Now he’s a man I’d like to meet. We have great need of his great good spirit. He was so ahead of his time wasn’t he, and in so many ways. Must now go and find his essays which are somewhere in my house.


  2. Schönes Bild von der Burg Eltz! Da wollte ich schon immer mal hin.



    1000 looks !! Amazing Frizz !


    • nearly 119,000 views, Kathryn – if you click on the photo – and many comments – there must be a reason for this great interest, I considered…

      I would like to notice 119,000 views on the video, featuring me, playing in “my” castle:

      only 388 views – must be a bad music …
