Christian Nestell Bovee often receives credit for the quote. “Kindness: a language which the dumb can speak and the deaf can understand,” he wrote in his 1857 book “Thoughts, Feelings, and Fancies.” ❧
Posting this solely to compare my Hypothes.is highlights and annotations on my website with Will’s version.
I’m still tinkering with mine and should have a Micropub based version using IFTTT and Webhooks done soon.
I thought this was important all on its own. Did they put this before everything? Was he just really religious?–Tmoon95 annotation on September 9, 2015
This statement also has a lot to do with the culture of the time: The Tribunal of the Holy Office of the Inquisition (Spanish: Tribunal del Santo Oficio de la Inquisición), commonly known as the Spanish Inquisition (Inquisición española), was established in 1478 by Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile. It was intended to maintain Catholic orthodoxy in their kingdoms and to replace the Medieval Inquisition, which was under Papal control.
Recall that Ferdinand and Isabella were the reigning monarchs who funded Columbus’ voyages.
Another useful tip on this front is to post a Micro Monday following recommendation aggregating a few people you know are interested in a particular topic. As an example, I posted one about a few educators and researchers I knew on micro.blog in July 2018 and it quickly blew up with lots of additional recommendations from others following me within the community.
Over time I’ve kept up with adding to it, and even within the last month that post is still helping to benefit others on the service:

Herbert van de Sompel sounds familiar but I’m not placing him at the moment. I’ll have to read his work with respect to some of my ideas on academic samizdat.
I love the brewing idea here. We definitely need this.
