Language as Communication

April 10, 2012

Language is often regarded as something you use to get by in your life. But language should fulfill your individual existence as a wholesome human being who knows how to speak as well as how to communicate with others. I think we have to draw a line between these two approaches: either you use words just to jumble things together or you speak so that you declare yourself as an individual. Language should be more than just getting by.

From remarks on language and elocution from the 1985 Seminary Transcripts, page 44.
