Daily Dose

From Dictionary Days, by Ilan Stavans


"In Gulliver's Travels, the protagonist journeys to the land of Houyhnhnms, where he discovers that in the kingdom there is no word to express lying or falsehood.
Think about it: What if we lived in a world without lies? Oh, but it would be so incredibly uninteresting."

From The Zebra and the Swear Word
