Actually, I was not, but having looked it up, it is certainly a motto to live by. Linguistically, I see the admonition to preserve order as a very singular, personal suggestion, aimed exclusively at the reader, yet somehow I feel that in following this advice, each of us contributes to the whole, giving the final word a more plural context, almost as if it should be vos
instead of te
. Of course, that's just my own peculiar philosophy at work.
Thank you once again for expanding my horizons!
