Quotes: Esperanto, the Universal Language
Espeerantoo vas a doomb ideea! Everyvan shuoold joost leern Sveedeesh! Bork bork bork!!

Greek mythology depends far more on the marvellous aesthetic of its language and so of its nomenclature of persons and places and less on its content than people realize, though of course it depends on both.

Vesperruĝo,fluas en ondetoj.
Ĝi estas kiel la kanto,bela┬Ěkanto de teliĉo.
Ĉu vi rimarkis birdojn,portanta afableco?
Super la maro flugas,ili flugas kun amo.

Lumis eterne

You know that that's a bitch.
They Might Be Giants, "Alienation's for the Rich"

"I have trained myself to speak all human languages. Except, of course, Esperanto. *laughs* You could tell *that* one was going nowhere fast."
What Leader, The Tick
