"A man with a scant vocabulary will almost certainly be a weak thinker. The richer and more copious one's vocabulary and the greater one's awareness of fine distinctions and subtle nuances of meaning, the more fertile and precise is likely to be one's thinking. Knowledge of things and knowledge of the words for them grow together. If you do not know the words, you can hardly know the thing."
-Henry Hazlitt (RIP), Thinking as a Science

"Having an identity - one that isn't easily subsumed and weaponized - is the single greatest sin one may commit in our time."

"A swan may appear to swim gracefully, but beneath the water,
its legs are feverishly scrambling."
