comment Why is 'So' being used to begin an anwer to a question grammatically incorrect?
It's probably considered poor style by newspaper and journal editors, and decried by older gentlemen with lawn care concerns as youthful or inarticulate or weak speech. Oh and your mom. It gives an informal tone to speech. Don't use it at debate contests, but feel free in Bachelorette tryouts.

comment A different translation of a quotation by Mevlânâ Rûmî
@FumbleFingers This not a translation request. It is a common on topic question for a comparable phrase. Also it gives a lot of context for us to attempt that. This is one of the better of such requests

comment Negative and insulting
In American English, what a donkey says is spelled 'hee haw'. Since AmE pronounces final 'r's, 'eeyore' doesn't sound like a donkey in the US.
