When our thinking goes wrong, it is nearly always because we have forgotten the simple truth that there is a difference between the name of a thing and the thing for which the name stands. The signpost is not the city. The map is not the country. The symbol is not the referent.
HUGH WALPOLE (1884-1941),
Semantics: The Nature of Words and their Meanings, 1941.
