"It is the very nature of language to form rather than inform. When language is personal, which it is at best, it reveals; and revelation is always formative - we don't know more, we become more. Our best users of language, poets and lovers and children and saints, use words to make - make intimacies, make character, make beauty, make goodness, make truth."
So it just goes to show... theres always someone who says it first, and they normally say it better. ;) Praise God for Eugene Peterson!
