G. Willow Wilson
“All translations are made up" opined Vikram, "Languages are different for a reason. You can't move ideas between them without losing something”
G. Willow Wilson, Alif the Unseen

Peadar Ó Guilín
“Changing words isn't so hard. Recognizing a particular sound, swapping it for another - that was easy even for your ancestors. Reading what happens in your head and the heads of all the beings around you, now that is difficult. Finding equivalents in one culture for the basic concepts of another - that is really difficult. I say the word vegetable and the translator tells you something like 'edible moss'. So, yes, it's a miracle, but it's a dangerous miracle. It makes you think you understand beasts and you never do. When it comes down to it, you can't even understand your own species.”
Peadar Ó Guilín, The Inferior
