“I had no words of my own for it. To this day I have none. It’s not true that there are words for everything. Nor is it true that we always think in words (…) The inner regions don’t correspond to language, they drag one to places where words are inadequate. It’s often the decisive point about which nothing more can be said, and the impulse to talk about it is well taken because it runs right past.”

― Herta Müller, ‘In Every Language there are Other Eyes.’
