“I once read that the ancient Egyptians had fifty words for sand and the Eskimos had a hundred words for snow. I wish I had a thousand words for love, but all that comes to mind is the way you move against me while you sleep and there are no words for that.”

    Nice, but Eskimos do not have a hundred words for snow. The number of words varies according to the particular language
