Quote from Confucius 

"If language is not correct,
then what is said is not what is meant;
if what is said is not what is meant,
then what must be done remains undone;
if this remains undone,
morals and art will deteriorate;
if justice goes astray,
the people will stand about in helpless confusion.
Hence there must be no arbitrariness in what is said.
This matters above everything."

[Kung Fu-tse] (551-479 B.C.) Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher
