QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“The simple physical pains and (still more) the pleasures can’t be expressed in language. I labour the point lest the devil should hereafter try to make you believe that what was wordless was therefore vague and nebulous. But in reality it is just the clearest, the most concrete, and the most indubitable realities which escape language: not because they are vague but because language is.”

Letter to Rhona Bodle 6/24/1949
(Published in The Collected Letters of C.S. Lewis, Volume II)
