Related to this is the reluctance of some Iranians of my acquaintance to send telegrams to their relatives.

In knowing how to use the resources of their own language in conjunction with their knowledge of society and its dynamics, they are able to negotiate and even transform an uncertain world with skill and grace. Though all men are able to do the same in their own tongues, it may be a particular Iranian skill to be able to carry out this magic with an elevated sense that raises the enterprise above mere pedestrian communication and into the realm of art.
