Language is the source of misunderstandings.
- Antoine de Saint-Exupery
And how! I just read this quotation and am inspired anew to pursue my profession. The right words can alter the course of this world, I daresay; they inspire the uninspired, transform misunderstanding into understanding; sharpen or dull the blade of communication; tear down walls or build them up; join enemies in an enlightened bond of mutual consciousness.
