The language we use to shape our thoughts is a function of the frames embedded in our minds, not the other way around.

Actually it's both, which makes the bullshit all the more dangerous. I'm not a big one for having favourite quotes or inspirational sayings, but I carried this one around in my wallet before it was stolen:

"Language becomes ugly and inaccurate because our thoughts are foolish, but the slovenliness of our language makes it easier for us to have foolish thoughts." - George Orwell
