"What if you invented a language so that everyone could speak to everyone? What if you believed a common language was the secret to ending war and racism? What if you got hundreds of thousands of people to speak your language in the era before the two world wars, and what if despite all the war and racism since, people still talked, flirted, sang, and got together for conferences in this language?... The language is real; its name is Esperanto, which means 'one who hopes'; it was invented by a Polish eye doctor named Ludwig Zamenhof more than a century ago."--Container.
