Undeniably.

Introductory sentence from a Chinese student's essay:

'As time goes on, the world has taken place.

I rather like this. It sounds at once meaningful and meaningless. You could preface it with 'Ahhhh, Glasshopper...' That dates me. How many readers understand that reference?

Bongggggg. Chingggg. (gongs)
Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee (Shakuhachi there)
CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK (temple blocks)
Master O-Nan Wang (the blind one, obviously.) 'We must not seek the answers to the questions, Glasshopper, but the questions to the answers...'
