Words Enchant in Context

"Words work when the imagination makes them work; in our minds we make and therefore remake our world. ... Words enchant in one setting, bore in another, because of the circumstance in which they are recited and the context in life's experience in which they are heard, not because of their propositions." —Jacob Neusner, Judaism in Monologue and Dialogue
