“Language will not only build the truth that it conveys, but it will also convey a different truth from the one that was intended, and this will be a truth about language, its unsurpassability in politics."JB
..."The mask of the adult is called 'experience.' It is expressionless, impenetrable, and ever the same. The adult has always already experienced [erlebt] everything: youth, ideals, hope, woman. It was all illusion. --Often we feel intimidated or embittered. Perhaps he is right. What can our retort be? We have not yet experienced [erhuhren] anything." W.B.
