"The more our vocabulary is controlled, the less we will be able to think for ourselves. We do think in words, and the fewer words we know, the more restricted our thoughts. As our vocabulary expands, so does our power to think."

~ Madeleine L'Engle, author of A Wrinkle in Time, on the decreasing vocabulary in today's culture.
