The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations defines esprit de l'escalier as, "An untranslatable phrase, the meaning of which is that one only thinks on one's way downstairs of the smart retort one might have made in the drawing room."

I am a superfan of both Cory Booker and you. Best birthday ever!

OMG!! This is amazing. I'm so glad you heard him speak. I've been a fan of his for a very long time and every time I've heard him speak he reminds me of the old souls I've heard growing up all my life--those voices wise beyond their years. That for such a young man to have lived the dream and embraced a powerful message so fully has always kept me watching him. He's a wise soul, someone the elders would say, is so wise, "he must have been here before." Excellent post!
