The Quote
“Words say who we are, how we live, what we value and what we despise. They explain our world and our schizophrenia; they tell us, about us. If we change our words, we change the world. And if with a cowardly weakness we neglect words, when words die, concepts will die. And then life will go on, wild and anonymous, or it will die, as nations die if words die. Because it is the word of the soul of a nation.”
