Have you ever heard the rule, “Never end a sentence with a preposition?” Well, I’ve just decided that is a dumb rule, and one that I hereby declare myself free from! I mean, what did they ever make a rule like that for?
Of course, I was quite inspired by Winston Churchill, one of my very favorite people to quote from.
Not ending sentences with prepositions is nonsense
up with which I will not put! –W.C.
That guy is SO great!
And have you ever heard the sentence that ends with not one, but five prepositions?
Little kid to his dad, who has promised to read him a story if he’d get into bed and wait: “What did you bring that book I didn’t want to be read to out of up for?”
So the next time someone tells you that you shouldn’t end a sentence with a preposition, ask them, “What in the world are you talking about?” Because after all, prepositions are a perfectly fine thing to end a sentence with.
