Peter J. Leithart » Blog Archive » Step at a time

When we ascend a staircase we leave behind the lower step in passing to the higher, but previously the lower one was before us. This must not be forgotten; otherwise, one will obtain exactly the opposite of what he would have wished to obtain – this is to say, in place of a complete, living knowledge, a truncated, abstract knowledge…

That is, men cannot unify in their human language all that they live through and feel in such a way that it can be expressed by a single word or single concept.
