    Just look at Dickens, He seemed to use Samuel Johnson’s entire dictionary to write “Tale of Two Cities”

    And they used these wooden things with a dark, smudgy core.

    Emojis generally only “describe” shallow simple feelings.

    I believe deep, complex feelings and Emojis cannot co-exist in any form of serious expression. One either cares deeply enough to write it out or one does not. Imagine Hamlet or The Sound of Music or The Road Not Taken using emojis. Vast emotional vacuum.

    Real men don’t need complex feelings. Decide what you want and go for it.

    In one (deliberately humorous) science fiction short story, future literature has become full of angsty pseudo-psychology, sex scenes, and lots of swearing. One of the main characters comments that the foul language in a particular book (that he’s helping write) would “make a bulldozer blush,” and his fiancée says she doesn’t understand how a story could have intellectual content without obscenity and profanity.

    “The Critique of Impure Reason” by Poul Anderson, 1962

    Here’s a deep, complex feeling expressed as math: √4b²?

    The literature of this time period may well be expressed in the future as " cartoon cave art."

    Since emoji meanings are unknown to me they are a waste of space. I feel no urge at all to try and decipher electronic drivel. I do use emoticons that I know and I’m sure there are more out there that I don’t.
