Language Is a Sign of Our Spiritual Nature
Part of my job is to think up titles and subtitles for articles. I enjoy the challenge, but it does take time. A good title conveys the essence of the work in a relatively brief phrase; it's even better if it has multiple resonances that complement the theme—perhaps a double meaning.
Titling or naming is a uniquely human habit that never ends. We name our children with great care. We see names and titles everywhere. Cars, shoes, restaurants, hamburger variations, paint and nail polish colors, clothing lines, television shows, and so on are given names to evoke certain feelings or to create associations in the mind, like strength, luxury, or sexiness, for example.
