“If you do not know where you come from, then you don’t know where you are, and if you don’t know where you are, then you don’t know where you’re going. And if you don’t know where you’re going, you’re probably going wrong.”

[Terry Pratchett: “I Shall Wear Midnight”]

Nothing is a sign unless it is interpreted as a sign. Anything can be a sign as long as someone interprets it as ‘signifying’ something – referring to or standing for something  other than itself.

I’m gonna break up this signifyin’
’cause somebody’s got to go…”
