'Because words are inert. They’re just symbols. They’re dead, you know? And so much of our experience is intangible. So much of what we perceive cannot be expressed. It’s unspeakable. And yet, you know, when we communicate with one another, and we feel that we’ve connected, and we think that we’re understood, I think we have a feeling of almost spiritual communion.
And that feeling might be transient, but I think it’s
what we live for.'
(From the movie Waking Life: Chapter 3 - Life Lessons)
