Language, Literature and Philosophy: Three Quotes

"Beyond the ideas which are chilled and congealed in language, we must seek the warmth and mobility of life" Bergson

"the great writers have all had and have all sought to give us a direct vision of the real, in cases where we perceive things only through our conventions, habits and symbols." Bergson

"to language, then - to language alone - it is, that fictitious entities owe their existence, their impossible, yet indispensible existence." Jeremy Bentham.
