Words really are empty. All we do is play with words in our minds. Sure, in theory, words represent experiences we have. But when I hear most words in a sentence I don't form a picture in my mind of what the word means. I just hear the words and thats the meaning, just the words. I react emotionally to these words. It really is amazing.

Words are empty, and words contain all things. Which is true?

"But let me speak no more of this. The words are not good for the secret meaning, everything always becomes a bit different, as soon as it is put into words, gets distorted a bit, a bit silly--yes, and this is also very good, and I like it a lot, I also very much agree with this, that this what is one man's treasure and wisdom always sounds like foolishness to another person."

Words do not express thoughts very well. They always become a little different immediately [as] they are expressed, a little distorted, a little foolish. And yet it also pleases me and seems right that what is of value and wisdom to one man seems nonsense to another.
