The Limits of Words and Language

January 6, 2010

Two quotes about words and language that ring very true to me at the moment:

Words we say, never seem to live up to the ones inside our heads.


Language is a cracked kettle on which we beat out tunes for bears to dance to, while all the time we long to move the stars to pity.

Gustave Flaubert
