Quote of the day:

"Under the tongue root a fight most dread, and another raging, behind, in the head."

This line, translated into Sanskrit, forms the chant in John Williams's "Duel of the Fates" theme from STAR WARS: THE PHANTOM MENACE. It is from Robert Graves' translation of the Celtic poem "Cad Goddeu" ("The Battle of the Trees").

Ah, the constant struggle in what to communicate verbally versus what's in my mind. If that's what that meant. I'm happy to interpret it that way- you're right, a good quote for me! ;)

LOL! I wasn't exactly thinking of it ::that:: way. I was just thinking of your inherent Celtic nature and your use of languages. :) Love the new avatar, BTW. Lovely!!!
