mere words matter

But I am a man whose life in many ways, even as an explorer, has been governed by words. By rumours and legends. Charted things. Shards written down. The tact of words. In the desert to repeat something would be to fling more water into the earth. Here nuance took you a hundred miles.
The English Patient, Michael Ondaatje

no more talk if it is only small talk  
i have no more water
to fling into the earth
