    “On the other hand it is probably safe to assume that Rembrandt and Spinoza surely would have at least passed on the street, now and again.
    Or even run into each other quite frequently, if only at some neighborhood shop or other.
    And certainly they would have exchanged amenities as well, after a time.
    Good morning, Rembrandt. Good morning to you, Spinoza.
    I was extremely sorry to hear about your bankruptcy, Rembrandt. I was extremely sorry to hear about your excommunication, Spinoza.
    Do have a good day, Rembrandt. Do have the same, Spinoza.
    All of this would have been said in Dutch, incidentally.

    “Once, Turner had himself lashed to the mast of a ship for several hours, during a furious storm, so that he could later paint the storm. Obviously, it was not the storm itself that Turner intended to paint. What he intended to paint was a representation of the storm. One's language is frequently imprecise in that manner, I have discovered.”
