Man, even man debased by the neocapitalism and pseudosocialism of our time, is a marvelous being because he sometimes speaks. Language is the mark, the sign, not of his fall but of his original innocence. Through the Word we may regain the lost kingdom and recover powers we possessed in the far-distant past.

आदमी, यहां तक कि आदमी ने हमारे समय के नवपाषाणवाद और छद्म धर्मवाद से बहस की, एक अद्भुत घटना है क्योंकि वह कभी-कभी बोलता है। भाषा उसकी निशानी नहीं बल्कि उसकी मूल मासूमियत की निशानी है। शब्द के माध्यम से हम खोए हुए राज्य को पुनः प्राप्त कर सकते हैं और उन शक्तियों को पुनः प्राप्त कर सकते हैं जिन्हें हमने दूर के अतीत में रखा था।
