Future Of The Art Of Dancing With Change

English by means of the World Wide Web is spreading into more and more corners of the world, expanding and revising itself through other languages, and gathering new riches. Although English appears to be the strongest horse in today's race to ride across the plains of the planet, all riders should sit firmly in their saddles and keep close eyes on the horizon. One German professor said recently that in science he now thinks better in English than in German. If this should become true of others around the world, we should all be concerned about what science may be losing. Surely science needs the insights that come through thinking in other languages, for these may be the insights that change and expand the nature of science.

All people in this world are one of three types: those who are immovable, those who may be moved, and those who move.
