The Fervour of Perseverance

The Fervour of Perseverance
Carles Santos

The fervour of perseverance as seen by composer Carles Santos.

 The worst thing that can happen to a word is that it is misspelled.

A badly spelled word continues to mean the same but in a mistaken way.

Even by mistake it cannot mean anything other than what it signifies.

 For example, the title of this work could undergo two misspellings: one, the word, fervour, could become  ferbour, and perseverance could become perseberance.

The ferbour of perseberance as far as understanding is concerned, would be the same as the fervour of perseverance, but in a mistaken manner.

Without a doubt, orthography should not exist, as it is of little use and can lead to confusion.

The ferbour of perseberance or what is the same thing, the fervour of perseverance, is a title which cannot be used by a young person, as perseberance or perseverance needs its own time to become a habit. The habit of perseberance or perseverance.

With or without a spelling mistake, this title encapsulates a work full of mistakes and errors of perseberance or perseverance which have needed time for one to understand that something which seems to be one thing isn’t necessarily what it seems to be. For example, in my case: I myself and everything that is derived from a systolic and personal tour of the present romantic and pleasant vanguard which stretches from the Middle Ages to the determining concept of “the more mistaken, the better”.

It is a pleasure to not be what one should be, oneself becoming a spelling mistake, of a language which offends orthodoxies.

We are talking about a mistaken work full of sense in itself, which marks the difference between time used and time lived.

The perception of the lack of perseberance or perseverance is always useless and at the same time helps to prioritise the irresponsibility of the act over its logic.

Tonight will surely be a night of mistakes.

With a different title, this work would still function in the same way.
