On Words...

Words are loaded pistols.
-Jean-Paul Sartre, writer and philosopher (1905-1980)

A word is not a crystal, transparent and unchanging; it is the skin of a living thought and may vary greatly in color and content according to the circumstances and time in which it is used.
-Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. Physician, essayist and poet (1809-1894)
