    Default Perfect English

    In my fanatical quest to write the perfect English letter I have come to the realization that it cannot be done. The ultimate goal for me is to be understood . This forum has helped me greatly in doing just that.

    I am extremely prejudice and bias for my native language . I understand the basic of all languages but English is my downfall for perfection, (predujice&bias here).

    As the Velvet Underground so rightly said, 'Between thought and expression, there lies a lifetime'. It can flow perfectly in your mind, but it's very hard to get it onto paper with anything like the same sparkle.
