  3. Personally, I think that grammar is a way to attain beauty. When you speak, or read, or write, you can tell if what you’ve said or read or written is a fine sentence.

When you use grammar, you peel back the layers, to see how it is all put together, see it quite naked, in a way. Muriel Barbery from her novel The Elegance of the Hedgehog
