“A few words, well chosen and well distinguished, will do work that a thousand cannot...and words, if they are not watched, will do deadly work sometimes.
...there are masked words abroad...which nobody understands, but which everybody uses, and most people will also fight for, live for, or even die for, fancying they mean this, or that, or the other, of things dear to them: for such words wear chameleon cloaks...of the colour of the ground of any man's fancy...”
John Ruskin (1819-1900).
