wittgenstein

Describe the aroma of coffee – why can’t it be done? Do we lack the words? And for what are words lacking? But how do we get the idea that such a description must after all be possible? Have you ever felt the lack of such a description? Have you ever tried to describe the aroma and not succeeded?

Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations, 1953
