Mathematics is a language without metaphors. That is why it is the perfect tool for conveying precise meaning — and perfectly useless for inspiring people.
Music is a language with nothing but metaphors. That is why it is the perfect tool for moving people (as in religious or martial music) — and why it is perfectly useless for conveying any precise meaning whatever.
Ordinary language combines all of these qualities.
(The Untamed Tongue: A Dissenting Dictionary
By Thomas Szasz :57)
Half-wits engage in denying about half of all wit, to wit the spirit of the writ. The dead in the head will bear a false witness until the curse of the verse that brings their hearse is written in this, our universe. Is it not, after all, quite a Book of Death? There are only a few verses in it transcribed from a Book of Life.
Every verse has a writer, that is something that the half-wits deny.
