language - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
If your age doth languish, prey you reform your language and thus your age. Rage cannot trump true reflective learning, true revelations.
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.

In a world without laughter, there would be no word for laughter.
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.
I hereby nail it. I nail "The Great Language Reformation" to the front doors of the establishment. If we want to see the true master we need to take a look at the smallest details of the craft we all fly in. Language is culture, what does ours say about ours? Be brave enough to see that the sounds we form language from are not random, yet multi-stranded triangulations of other concepts, recipes that guide our actions and opinions. After the reformation, we will be really driving our future rather believing we are steering from the top of a double decker bus. The prefrontal cortex, the "good wolf," needs our conscious effort to gain and retain control. That is true freedom.
