Language is our main means for construing and comprehending and representing our experience of the world—to ourselves and to others.

Therefore, the more capacious our vocabulary and the more capable our skills of grammar, syntax, logic and rhetoric, then the more fully and clearly may we make sense of what we apprehend.

Without such a tool for sense-making, for conceptualizing and articulating, we could not be fully realized as human beings employing the whole potential of our unique intelligence.

Master language, then, if you mean to achieve the sapience inherent in Homo sapiens sapiens.
