I came across a quotation that piqued my interest. It's short enough to include here directly:
I can't understand it. I can't even understand the people who can understand it.
— Queen Juliana of the Netherlands.
I would like to ask about the context of this quote, perhaps with a title like "What couldn't Queen Juliana understand?".
Is there a Stack Exchange where such a question would be on-topic?
Sites I have considered:
- English Language & Usage was my first thought, since they often trace historical word usage. However, the phrase hasn't slipped into popular English language and in fact it may not have been originally uttered in English in the first place.
- Skeptics often has questions along the lines of "Did [celebrity] really say [controversial phrase]?" but my quotation isn't particularly controversial or all that famous.
- History seems like it covers more pivotal events and the more distant past.
Right now, I can't see any Stack Exchange site where such a question is definitely on-topic, but maybe there's something I have overlooked.
