Thomas said to him, “Teacher, my mouth is utterly unable to say what you are like.” (from The Gospel of Thomas, translated by Stephen Patterson and Marvin Meyer)
Sometimes we are surrounded by words we cannot speak. Like when we watch dawn cresting or a heart breaking. The words float nearby, though. (Dr SunWolf)
Only in the silence can we ever know truth. But, in the words of Ludwig Wittgenstein, “Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.”
The Gospel of Thomas [v13], translated by Stephen Patterson and Marvin Meyer, as presented on The Gnostic Society Library.
