In reference to the previous post, I mentioned the final paragraph stating that “Lastly, there is no lastly.” Here was that person’s response to that sentence (maybe from another quote, maybe not):

“Lastly, when one applies theories of numerology postulating that for every n there is also an n+1 to the concept of chronology as it is perceived and applied by society and the organizational tendencies which lead us to categorize, prioritize, and otherwise enumerate items, tasks, or other ephemeral collections placed before us for consideration, one must determine that while there may not obviously be that which we would define as “thirdly”, we can always ascertain with certainty that there is indeed no “lastly.”  By definition, that would be impossible.  Hence, I concur with your paradoxically mislabeled statement: “Lastly, there is no lastly.””

I love the English language.

Update: I found out the above quote wasn’t quoted from any other source so I’ve updated it to show that it belongs to him. I’m just glad he doesn’t speak like that all the time.
