how does one split an infinitive
An infinitive is to + a verb and can function as a noun or adverb in a sentence. A split infinitive is one that inserts an adverb between the preposition and the verb. It’s pretty widely accepted though not technically correct by old English standards.

I have a coffee mug with this quote.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (via wordsbydan)
Brain, can you just remember this? Like every day and with all of your interactions— that someone may be hurting or feeling wronged, so why not be kind.
If you appreciate your professor, take a minute or two to tell them. I cannot tell you how much the following note meant to me today:
“Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback and responding. I appreciate and enjoy reading your comments. Too often we submit assignments only to receive a number or a letter in return and feel totally disconnected when this happens. Also I wanted to say that I appreciate you sharing your letter today that you wrote to your boys. It was very endearing. Your vulnerability by sharing this part of your life did not go unnoticed and I admire your willingness to connect with your students.”
It was a good day.
