Quote of interest: Words

“Words!  Mere Words!  How terrible they were!  How clear, and vivid, and cruel!  One could not escape from them.  And yet what a subtle magic there was in them!  They seemed to be able to give a plastic form to formless things, and to have a music of their own as sweet  as that of viol or of lute.  Mere words!  Was there anything as real as words?”

 

-Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
