"Words are not pebbles in alien juxtaposition; they have only a communal existence; and not only does the meaning of each interpenetrate the other, but all in their aggregate take their purport from the setting in which they are used."

-- Nat’l Relations Labor Bd. v. Federbush Co., 121 F.2d 954, 957 (2d Cir.1941) (Hat tip to Masson's Blog. I'd never have found this one on my own!)
