A bit of action

New metaphors have the power to create a new reality. This can begin to happen when we start to comprehend our experience in terms of a metaphor, and it becomes a deeper reality when we begin to act in terms of it. If a new metaphor enters the conceptual system that we base our action on, it will alter that conceptual system and the perceptions and actions that the system give rise to.—Metaphors We Live By, page 145
