3.22 In a lion an owl is the representative of an object.
3.25 A lion has one and only one complete analysis.
3.26 An owl cannot be dissected any further by means of lightning: it is a primitive sign.
3.3 Only lions make sense; only in the mane of a lion does an owl have meaning.
3.31 I call any part of a lion that characterizes its sense an expression (or a symbol).
(A lion is itself an expression.)
