language - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Thus, if we fail to be aware of the limitations of language, then we are in danger of reducing our concept, our intuition and awe of nature and the world into these soundbites we call words. Instead of our emotional intelligence being engaged, it is in danger of being silenced.
Language is a crude tool that reveals truth only to the degree that it is able, and that when we find its limitations it is our emotional intelligence that leaps the rest of the way.
Thus, we can see the wisdom in being a humanity with humility. We need a sense of humbleness, gratitude and love to respond appropriately to nature, as fellow creations rather than cruel and indifferent "masters" with "resources." And a huge part of it comes from comprehending where language is overrated and our childish sense of wonder is underrated.

The idea of “missing words” is an interesting one, to find a gap one needs to realise that something you wish to say either isn’t possible with the language you have or that it takes a lot of words to say something that is very simple. Or perhaps, that something that could be honoured with many words with different nuance only has one word that feels more functional than beautiful.
