"'When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, 'it
means just what I choose it to mean--neither more or less.' 'The question
is,' said Alice, 'whether you can make words mean different things.' 'The

I forgot to remark on the Alice in Wonderland quote I added to my first
I hope you liked the quote and the whole Alice in Wonderland story.
My interpretation of Humpty Dumpty's statement "...The question is, which is
to be master - that's all" is that we need to decide if we control words or
words control us.
This has a similar ring to the meditation related question, does my mind
control me, or do I control my mind.
Do you see a general connection?
