The magic of words is that they have power to do more than convey meaning; not only do they have the power to make things clear, they make things happen.

All these words are just a front.
What I would really like to do
is chain you to my body,
then sing for days & days & days.

A Quote by Mr. on people, judgment, value, value judgment, shadings, words, connotations, individuals, groups, power, adjectives, and mr prophet

Words in general and adjectives in particular have power. It is a power that comes in degrees or shadings. People and even societies can make value judgments on others just by the shadings of the words they use. Weird, strange, different and unique are really just different shadings of the same word but evoke completely connotations when applied to individuals or groups of people.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on names, imagination, luke soloman, proverb, axiom, picture, speaking, words, funny, humor, comedy, satire, parody, home, and return

Finally, we entered Chetaube County, my imaginary birthplace, where the names of the little winding roads and minuscule mountain communities never failed to inspire me: Yardscrabble, Big Log, Upper, Middle and Lower Pigsty, Chicken Scratch, Cooterville, Felchville, Dust Rag, Dough Bag, Uranus Ridge, Big Bottom, Hooter Holler, Quickskillet, Buck Wallow, Possum Strut … We always say a picture speaks a thousand words, but isn’t the opposite equally true?

A Quote by Terence McKenna on terence mckenna, language, words, reality, psychedelic, experience, meaning, magic, and world

I thought about it, a few years actually, and I decided that meaning and language are two different things. And that what the alien voice in the psychedelic experience wants to reveal is the syntactical nature of reality. That the real secret of magic is that the world is made of words, and that if you know the words that the world is made of you can make of it whatever you wish.
