  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Lundi semble être le jour le plus incompris et ingrate, même si lundi signifie le début d'une nouvelle semaine de travail, et la meilleure occasion d'un nouveau départ 52 fois par année. à mon avis, quand vous avez une passion pour ce que vous faites dans votre vie, tout et tous les jours de la semaine devient une merveilleuse journée à la hâte. Tous les lundis devient alors magique lundi, au lieu de lundi banal, seulement avec votre amour et passion pour votre travail.

When it is a good design, the reader has to feel comfortable because the letter is both banal and beautiful.

  5. Michael Bloomberg:

    I find the level of discourse and discussion distressingly banal and an outrage and an insult to the voters.
