House of Being ...

"Language is the house of Being. In its home man dwells. Those who think and those who create with words are the guardians of this home. Their guardianship accomplishes the manifestation of Being insofar as they bring the manifestation to language and maintain it in language through their speech."

(Martin Heidegger, "Letter on Humanism." Trans. J. Glenn Gray)
