WORDS ABOUT WORDS
To grasp the meaning of the world today we use a language created to express the world of yesterday. The life of the past seems to us nearer our true natures, but only for the reason that is is nearer our language.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery, French novelist, essayist, and aviator, Wind, Sand, and Stars, 1939
