lyrics

If it is asked, "how does a sentence manage to represent," the answer might be, "don't you know? Surely you see it when you use one? after all, nothing is concealed..." One would like to reply, "yes, but it all goes by so quickly, and I should like to see it more fully laid out."

During a dream, and even long after we have woken up, words occurring in the dream can strike us as having the greatest significance. Can't we be subject to the same illusion when awake?
I have the impression that I am sometimes liable to this these days. The insane often seem to be like this.

The earlier culture will become a heap of rubble, and finally a heap of ashes. But spirits will hover over the ashes.

As we get old, problems slip from our fingers again, as they used to when we were young. It isn't just that we can't crack them, we cannot even keep hold of them.

When you are philosophizing you have to descend into primeval chaos and feel at home there.

You must bear in mind that the language game is so-to-say something unpredictable. I mean, it is not based on grounds. It is not reasonable or unreasonable. It is there. Like our life.

After all nothing is hidden.

But it all goes by so quickly


-- Quotes taken out of context from Ludwig Wittgenstein's "Philosophical Investigations" and "Culture and Value".
