Confucius: If language is not correct, then what is said is not what is meant; if what is said is not what is meant, then what must be done remains undone; if this remains undone, morals and art will deteriorate; if justice goes astray, the people will stand about in helpless confusion. Hence there must be no arbitrariness in what is said. This matters above everything.

This means that marketing texts are the greatest enemy of clear language. Maybe that's why they are so difficult to construct..icon_rolleyes.gif

the power of words Feb 22, 2004

Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.
--Buddha

An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.
--Buddha

...When words are both true and kind, they can change our world...
When they are neither true nor kind, they can change it even more..

art, imagination and knowledge Feb 24, 2004

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
