Language is the main instrument of man's refusal to accept the world as it is ... History is a speech-act, a selective use of the past tense. - George Steiner, After Babel - Aspects of Language and Translation, 2nd Paperback Printing, Oxford, 1977 (1975), 29 / 218.

Nature is the scattered and broken body of a human God or Titan. What we see in nature is our own body turned inside out. - Northrop Frye, Fearful Symmetry, 2nd Paperback Printing, Princeton, 1970 (1947), 349

Somewhat closer to the mark, I believe, is the approach of contemporary linguist E.H. Sturtevant: since all intentions and emotions are involuntarily expressed by gesture, look, or sound, voluntary communication, such as language, must have been invented for the purpose of lying or deceiving.* In a more circumspect vein, the philosopher Caws insisted that "truth...is a comparative latecomer on the linguistic scene, and it is certainly a mistake to suppose that language was invented for the purpose of telling it." [ * "Speech was given to man to disguise his thoughts," Appropriately, this note is attributed to Talleyrand, diplomat and statesman. ] - John Zerzan, Elements of Refusal, 1st Hardcover Printing, Columbia, MO. 2006 (1988), 36

Our Blood 04:05
People will tell you That pride comes before a fall But I've never fallen I always rise above it all Reserve is for losers And, baby, what do they know? Let the timid be humble We're better than that, so Let's get cocky now, let's really get cocky now Let's get cocky now, let's really get cocky now Let's go... People will tell you To always expect the worst But I don't expect that My horse has always run in first So get with a winner Just come and take me by the hand We'll tempt all the fates, then Laugh in their faces Let's get cocky now, let's really get cocky now It's time to get cocky now, 'cause nothing's gonna stop us now ...how could anything go wrong?

Into The 02:31
Language and death may be conceived of as the two areas of meaning or cognitive constants in which grammar and ontology are mutually determinant ... What we can say best of language, as of death, is, in a certain sense, a truth just out of reach. He who has been in Christ and has heard unspeakable words shall not utter them in a mortal idiom ... Ash is no translation of fire. - George Steiner, After Babel - Aspects of Language and Translation, 2nd Paperback Printing, Oxford, 1977 (1975), 124/239/241.
