Words

The great enemy of clear language is insincerity.Political language…is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.

George Orwell, writer (1903-1950)

Words – so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.
– Nathaniel Hawthorne, writer (1804-1864)
