Quote of the Day- 'First Words'

“The few first words with which mankind started its vocabulary were labels for pre-scientific ideas, naïve generalizations full of silent assumptions, objectifications, of non-existents,…Our daily speech and in very large measure our scientific language is one enormous system of such assumptions.” 
—Alfred Korzybski 

“Fate and Freedom” (1923/4), Alfred Korzybski Collected Writings, p. 18.
