    but it would be as easy almost to alter the career of a planet as for man to alter these.
  • Gennady Klimenkohas quoted6 years ago
    By the time that a people begin to meditate upon their language, to be aware by a conscious reflective act either of its merits or deficiencies, by far the greater and more important part of its work is done; it is fixed in respect of its structure in immutable forms; the region in which any alteration or modification, addition to it, or

    from it, deliberately devised and carried out, may be possible, is very limited indeed.
