"Language is not a reservoir of possible meanings waiting to be realized. On the contrary, meaning always exists in an actualized state and the set of meanings attached to a given phrase is finite, limited to those meanings actually in use. [...] Language is a part of nature, infinite, incessantly producing itself according to ever changing laws immanent to it which no individual can disobey without falling into meaninglessness. It is both the producer and product of a collectivity." - Warren Montag, Bodies, Masses, Power
