The first time I heard about Esperanto, I attacked it. Because that was what everybody around me did and I’ve learned from them.

The second time, it annoyed me and I attacked again.

The third time, I was indifferent.

The fourth time, I was curious.

The fifth time, I started to learn it.

That’s why I keep repeating to anybody who’d listen: Esperanto, Esperanto, Esperanto, Esperanto, Esperanto. And I encourage others to do the same.
