“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said… “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.”
— Through the Looking Glass. Lewis Carroll (1832-1898).
Such a great quote. Apply it to a word like “mindfulness” or if you’re feeling a little daring “enlightenment”. Stir and let sit over night. What do you come up with? Did you crack?
