“When we move from word to referent, we think we are leaping from crag to crag, across and abyss below. If we slip, we have had it. But this description is itself dependent upon a metaphor, as though meaning has to get increasingly smudgy every time we make a xerox copy of it. But suppose it is not like that. What if God has created the world in such a way that meaning gets clearer and crisper each time we move it properly?” (Writers to Read, p. 52).
