“We are using, everyone of us, words as coins in our everyday life, in the barter between men, and once in a while we put up a temporary hut or store for our thought and feeling. But the artist knows how to erect a building with language as material, which he is polishing and selecting and treating and arranging; a building, built in a severe style, created by imagination and order, not only serving for the occasion, but offering a home, a refuge, an expression even to our more or less homeless and wandering feelings and thoughts.”

-Nathan Söderblom, The Living God
