“For, Citta, these are merely names, expressions, turns of speech, designations in the world, which the Tathāgata uses without misapprehension; uses to conform to common prejudice without clinging to them.”
D 9.52-3

“Those who live by names and concepts,
Confident in names and concepts,
Discerning not the naming process,
Are subject to the realm of Death.
Who labels not, holds no concepts,
Has cut off lust for name and form.”
S 1.1.20
