    Statistics, words. Same difference.

    and that shows that there are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might get un-birthday presents -- '

    `Certainly,' said Alice.

    `And only one for birthday presents, you know. There's glory for you!'

    `I don't know what you mean by "glory,"' Alice said.

    Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. `Of course you don't -- till I tell you. I meant "there's a nice knock-down argument for you!"'

    `But "glory" doesn't mean "a nice knock-down argument,"' Alice objected.

    `When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, `it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less.'

    `The question is,' said Alice, `whether you can make words mean so many different things.'

    `The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, `which is to be master - - that's all.'

    Alice was too much puzzled to say anything, so after a minute Humpty Dumpty began again. `They've a temper, some of them -- particularly verbs, they're the proudest -- adjectives you can do anything with, but not verbs -- however, I can manage the whole of them! Impenetrability! That's what I say!'

    `Would you tell me, please,' said Alice `what that means?`

    `Now you talk like a reasonable child,' said Humpty Dumpty, looking very much pleased. `I meant by "impenetrability" that we've had enough of that subject, and it would be just as well if you'd mention what you mean to do next, as I suppose you don't mean to stop here all the rest of your life.'

    `That's a great deal to make one word mean,' Alice said in a thoughtful tone.

    `When I make a word do a lot of work like that,' said Humpty Dumpty, `I always pay it extra.'

    `Oh!' said Alice. She was too much puzzled to make any other remark.

    `Ah, you should see `em come round me of a Saturday night,' Humpty Dumpty went on, wagging his head gravely from side to side: `for to get their wages, you know.'

      I heart you for this quote Neal Deesit.  I sincerely heart you.  Forgive me if I misspell sesquepedalian after my own heart.
