  •  That quote intrigued me. (1+ / 0-)

    "We've woven a web of words and trapped ourselves."
    I went looking for some record of it, but was unable to find anything. I was intrigued because it reminded me so much of this (from "Sunset Blvd"):

    "Writing words, words, more words. Well, you've made a rope of words and strangled this business."

    Leads me to wonder whether Wilder and Brackett borrowed from your philosopher or vice-versa.

    ("We've woven a web of words;" "wonder whether Wilder." Hmmm...seems alliteration is in the air along with euphemisms.)
