Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo

The Complete Set

I am thinking of doing some studies in English language, not for any creative purpose, but for recreation.

All right.

With this aim in view, I want to take up your immortal philosophy – though my walnut of a brain can't do much with it – and if you will allow, have some discussions with you, at intervals.

Provided the discussions can be put in a “walnut” shell!

I hear you are having a tough fight with the forces?

Very beastly – these forces. One can't advance a single step without their throwing their shells and stink-bombs. However like General Joffre, I advance. “Nous progressāmes.”1

If we busy ourselves with something like the study of the English language, as I have stated, it may indirectly help to keep the devil off.

Let us hope so. There is much need of keeping him off and if the English language can do it, glory be to the English language!



1 In French, “We progressed”.
