“Must a name mean something?”
“Of course it must,” Humpty Dumpty said with a short laugh: “my name means the shape I am – and a good handsome shape it is, too. With a name like yours, you might be any shape, almost.”
. . .
“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in a rather scornful tone, ‘’it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more or less.”
“The question is,” said
“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master – that’s all.”
(Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass)
