WORDS ABOUT WORDS
Language is not the passive container or medium of human thought whose only function is to transmit and communicate our ideas and sentiments from one person to another. Language is, to borrow a phrase from Marshall McLuhan, a living vortex of power that shapes and transforms our thinking.
Robert K. Logan, Canadian writer and academic, The Sixth Language, 2000
