What does this mean?
for I call not love a misfortune, from a persuasion, that a man's heart is ever the better for it.

[The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

The last sentence in Chapter XXV]

   It did my uncle Toby's business.

My A..e, quoth my uncle Toby, is much better--brother Shandy--My father had
formed great expectations from his Asse in this onset; and would have
brought him on again; but doctor Slop setting up an intemperate laugh--and
my mother crying out L... bless us!--it drove my father's Asse off the
field--and the laugh then becoming general--there was no bringing him back
to the charge
[???], for some time--

And so the discourse went on without him.

Hello!

I was wondering if anyone here was learning Albanian? I have a cousin whos partner is Albanian, and she would love to learn the language for when visiting Albania with their child, so she would be able to communicate at least on basic levels with her daughters grandparents. She is also of the belief that her daughter should grow up learning both English and Albanian.

I was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations on websites and books that will help her with this? I have, of course, done a search. it's just hard to know what is good and what isn't, so I would prefer any specific recommendations from people.

Thank you!
