Words are but symbols for the relations of things to one another and to us; nowhere do they touch upon absolute truth.[Die Worte sind nur Symbole für die Relationen der Dinge unter einander und zu uns und berühren nirgends die absolute Wahrheit.]
Words are and remain an empty sound, and the road to perdition has ever been accompanied by lip service to an ideal.
The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.
