River quote?[edit]

I saw this on an online petition. Tried a quick Google search but nothing came up except references to the petition. Misattribution?

"There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river. We need to go upstream and find out why they're falling in." --Melarish (talk) 22:03, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

Language quote[edit]

There is a quote often attributed to Tutu, "Language is very powerful, language does not just describe reality, language creates the reality it describes."

It seems this is really something he said, based on Bill Moyers' pages on PBS. But is this source reliable enough? 14:20, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
