It’s always interesting to see how two seemingly unrelated ideas or phrases are juxtaposed and a new connection is formed. Just like these two quotes that I saw at the beginning of a chapter in a book on the Cold War:
“Cry ‘havoc,’ and let slip the dogs of war…”
– William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?”
“To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.”
“The dog did nothing in the night-time.”
“That was the curious incident,” remarked Sherlock Holmes.
– Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
Now here’s a clever idea of how rhetoric and action often do not match in reality.
