Well, that title has me reaching for a dictionary (apothegm – alt spelling apophthegm I kid you not - pithy saying - unpithy name - more short and pointed, practical than an aphoriism need be) and it also would have me reaching for a most amazing book I am reading at the moment, Figuring by Maria Popova, who allows him some cameos on her majestic mapping of the overlooked, world changing women (big worlds and little worlds), though it is not in the same building. He’s a “Yankee teacher to the world” this edition spruiks – and he gets a tick of approval from Popova, so he’s all right by me.
