They don't like what we write for them, what we dish up for them, because it's vapid, so they'll go for the hard words, they'll go for the hard concepts, they'll go for the stuff where they can learn something. Not didactic things, but passionate things.

For how smart we think we are, how facile with words, we don't have a word for this feeling, the feeling of being blessed by belonging.
