გარდაუვალი წესია: ერთი თაობა მიდის, მეორე - მოდის... ხალხი კი უკვდავია. უკვდავია მისი ენაც, თუკი მას ხალხმა ზურგი არ შეაქცია; ენა თაობიდან თაობას გადაეცემა და მისი წყალობით ეს თაობები ერთ ხალხად ითქმის: ხალხის მეობას მისი ენა გვანიშნებს.
  ენის საშუალებით გადაეცემა შემდგომ თაობას, რაც წინა თაობას ცოდნა-გამოცდილება დაუგროვებია. ეს რომ არა, კულტურის განვითარება შეუძლებელი იქნებოდა.
  ბუნებრივია, რომ ყოველ ადამიანს უყვარს თავისი ენა, უყვარს დედა-ენა.
  ასევე ბუნებრივია სხვის ენას პატივისცემით ვეკიდებოდეთ: “სხვისი ენა” აკი ვიღაცისთვის დედა-ენაა.
რა თქმა უნდა, ვისაც თავისი ენა არ უყვარს, სხვისი ენის პატივისცემას ვერ დაიჩემებს, მისთვის ყველა ენა ერთია:
კოსმოპოლიტია და არა - ინტერნაციონალისტი.
  ქართულ ენაზე მდიდარი მწერლობა მოგვეპოვება. ეს მწერლობა ჩვენი კულტურის დიდი ძალაა, თუკი მკითხველი და, პირველ რიგში, ახალგაზრდობა მას სათანადოდ მოეკიდება.
