The following anecdote has been making its way around the internet. It comes to me via the Faith & Theology blog, and in turn came to him via Inhabitatio Dei, another blog. Whether it’s apocryphal or not, I don’t know, but it fits and is a wonderful anecdote regardless:

Stanley Hauerwas was at Harvard to deliver a lecture and, being there early and still needing to do some preparation, he set out to find the library. Not finding it, he stopped a student and asked him, “Excuse me, where’s the library at?”

Incredulous, the student responded, “Sir, at Harvard we don’t end our sentences with a preposition.”

Stanley paused for a moment and then rephrased his question in a more grammatically appropriate manner: “Where’s the library at, asshole?”
