Peculiarities of the English Language

I was going through a 9th grade English Grammar text and lo I stumbled upon something that is so peculiar, that which disintegrates all that is sensible.
Here is the example: Every Boy and Every Girl is to wear uniform. What is peculiar in this sentence is there are two noun subjects: Every Boy and Every Girl. What is fascinatingly ironic is, the verb is (singular) instead of are (plural)is used.
Boys and Girls find it difficult to comprehend the meanings. I wonder who is the maestro who created such ambiguities of language?

Epiphany

Psyche your marvel—nature’s decorated ornament—there nature has perched you on wings sublime—there you float in the air like the strings of the harp being plucked— you colorful entity—you music of nature—you marvel of God’s creation –there you go like the psalms being said—you are a psychedelic halo—a gaze of a seer—a magic for the soul—a cantata for the heart.

From the Bible

The Bible teaches us that WORDS are powerful things and we have to use them with care as words carry a curse or a cure or a blessing. I can quote one example from the Old Testament. When Jacob was leaving Laban (Rebecca was Laban’s Daughter) his uncle along with his wife Rebecca, Laban a pagan accused him of stealing his household Gods. To that Jacob replied that whoever has stolen them will be cursed and die. And when Rebecca was having pregnancy complications she succumbed to death. Another example is from the New Testament. While Jesus was traveling he came across a Fig Tree. He was feeling very hungry and to his irony it had no fruit though it was the fruiting time. Jesus cursed the Fig Tree and it withered. So the lesson is WORDS can generate blessings or curses.
