Octavio Paz Quote

Man, even man debased by the neocapitalism and pseudo-socialism of our time, is a marvellous being because he sometimes speaks. Language is the mark, the sign, not of his fall but of his original innocence. Through the Word we may regain the lost kingdom and recover powers we possessed in the far-distant past.
