Language enables people to express their feelings, ideas, wishes and so on. It is a tool of knowledge through which the worldly knowledge is acquired and preserved, and language is one of the indicators of cultural identity of a linguistic community as well as individual personality. Each language contains its own people’s culture and customs. (Link)

Languages, at least in their literary form, are artificially transformed. They, of course, contain some soft of people’s culture and customs, but often in perverted form, when local dialect of uncreative minority was taken as a basis. In that case, when territorial dominates over creative from the very beginning, a language could be a bad tool. This primitive language will conserve the pettiness of it’s native speakers, and as so it will not allow any this-language-speaking potential genius to develop his talent. Should not we save people from their languages?

CYRIL. Well, before you read it to me, I should like to ask you a question. What do you mean by saying that life, ‘poor, probable,uninteresting human life,’ will try to reproduce the marvels of art? I can quite understand your objection to art being treated as a mirror. You think it would reduce genius to the position of a cracked looking – glass. But you don’t mean to say that you seriously believe that Life imitates Art, that Life in fact is the mirror, and Art the reality?
VIVIAN. Certainly I do. Paradox though it may seem – and paradoxes are always dangerous things – it is none the less true that Life imitates art far more than Art imitates life….
All that I desire to point out is the general principle that Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life, and I feel sure that if you think seriously about it you will find that it is true. Life holds the mirror up to Art, and either reproduces some strange type imagined by painter or sculptor, or realises in fact what has been dreamed in fiction…
