El don de la palabra™

«El lenguaje nos ayuda a capturar el mundo, y cuanto menos lenguaje tengamos, menos mundo capturamos. O más deficientemente. Una mayor capacidad expresiva supone una mayor capacidad de comprensión de las cosas. Si se empobrece la lengua se empobrece el pensamiento».
«Una lengua natural es el archivo adonde han ido a parar las experiencias, saberes y creencias de una comunidad».
Fernando Lázaro Carreter (1923-2004), filólogo español y miembro de la Real Academia Española.
«Una palabra rara es en una página como un adoquín levantado en una calle».

 

Wenceslao Fernández Flórez (1879-1964), novelista, periodista y político español.


«Siempre que enseñes, enseña a la vez a dudar de lo que enseñes».
José Ortega y Gasset (1883-1955). Filósofo y ensayista español.
