The Inexpressible quotes by Ambrose Bierce

The Inexpressible quotes by Frederick Franck
#2. I know artists whose medium is life itself, and who express the inexpressible without brush, pencil, chisel or guitar. They neither paint nor dance. Their medium is Being. Whatever their hand touches has increased life ... They are the artists of being alive. #Quote by Frederick Franck
The Inexpressible quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#3. He who does not at some time, with definite determination consent to the terribleness of life, or even exalt in it, never takes possession of the inexpressible fullness of the power of our existence. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
The Inexpressible quotes by Susan Sontag
#4. In the greatest art, one is always aware of things that cannot be said ... of the contradiction between expression and the presence of the inexpressible. Stylistic devices are also techniques of avoidance. The most potent elements of a work of art are, often, its silences. #Quote by Susan Sontag
The Inexpressible quotes by James Baldwin
#5. The distance between us, and I had never thought of this before, was that they did not know this, and I now dared to realize that I loved them more than they loved me. And I do not mean that my love was greater: who dares judge the inexpressible expense another pays for his life? who knows how much one is loved, by whom, or what that love may be called on to do? No, the way the cards had fallen meant that I had to face more about them than they could know about me, knew #Quote by James Baldwin
The Inexpressible quotes by John Piper
#6. For poets, at least, experiencing something inexpressible does not mean silence. It's precisely the inexpressible something that poetry is meant to help us see or feel. If it were merely expressible - if there were nothing ineffable about it - there would be no need for a poem. But everywhere in the Bible we meet reality that exceeds our expectations. #Quote by John Piper
The Inexpressible quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#7. The mediator of the inexpressible is the work of art. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
The Inexpressible quotes by Matthew Gregory Lewis
#8. Did she know the inexpressible charm of modesty, how irresistibly it enthralls the heart of man, how firmly it charms him to the throne of beauty #Quote by Matthew Gregory Lewis
The Inexpressible quotes by Will Steacy
#9. As Marcel Proust understood, memory is not exclusively or even predominantly visual. It is synesthetic, a combination and even a confusion of the senses that no simple image can reach or encapsulate. A photograph can act as a spur to memory, it can yield treasures, like looking under your bed and finding the baseball card you were certain you lost. But an image stands mute before the inexpressible delicacy, horror, humor, and associative complexity of our experience. #Quote by Will Steacy
The Inexpressible quotes by Pope John Paul II
#10. In the context of the "great mystery" of Christ and of the Church, all are called to respond - as a bride - with the gift of their lives to the inexpressible gift of the love of Christ, who alone, as the Redeemer of the world, is the Church's Bridegroom. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
The Inexpressible quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#11. We must start from what seems a be a nullity, the unknowable, the inexpressible, the creative mystery wherein we are established. We cannot become more exact than this without introducing falsehood. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
The Inexpressible quotes by Oliver Sacks
#12. The inexpressible depth of music, so easy to understand and yet so inexplicable, is due to the fact that it reproduces all the emotions of our innermost being, but entirely without reality and remote from its pain ... Music expresses only the quintessence of life and of its events, never these themselves. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
The Inexpressible quotes by Siri Hustvedt
#13. I remember thinking how easy it is to speak in clichés, to steal a line from pulp fiction and let it fall. We can only hover around the inexpressible with our words anyway, and there is comfort in saying what we have heard before. #Quote by Siri Hustvedt
The Inexpressible quotes by R.H. Blyth
#14. The sun shines, snow falls, mountains rise and valleys sink, night deepens and pales into day, but it is only very seldom that we attend to such things ... When we are grasping the inexpressible meaning of these things, this is life, this is living. To do this twenty-four hours a day is the Way of Haiku. It is having life more abundantly. #Quote by R.H. Blyth
The Inexpressible quotes by Stanislaw Lem
#15. A man can control only what he comprehends, and comprehend only what he is able to put into words. The inexpressible therefore is unknowable. By examining future stages in the evolution of language we come to learn what discoveries, changes and social revolutions the language will be capable, some day, of reflecting. #Quote by Stanislaw Lem
The Inexpressible quotes by Marty Rubin
#16. We feel more than we can express, we see more than we can say. #Quote by Marty Rubin
The Inexpressible quotes by Yasunari Kawabata
#17. In the depths of the mirror the evening landscape moved by, the mirror and the reflected figures like motion pictures superimposed one on the other. The figures and the background were unrelated, and yet the figures, transparent and intangible, and the background, dim in the gathering darkness, melted into a sort of symbolic world not of this world. Particularly when a light out in the mountains shone in the centre of the girl's face, Shimamura felt his chest rise at the inexpressible beauty of it. #Quote by Yasunari Kawabata
The Inexpressible quotes by Edward Abbey
#18. Music begins where words leave off. Music expresses the inexpressible. If there is a Kingdom of Heaven, it lies in music. #Quote by Edward Abbey
The Inexpressible quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#19. If the inexpressible cruelties of slavery could not stop us, the opposition we now face will surely fail. We will win our freedom because the sacred heritage of our nation and the eternal will of God are embodied in our echoing demands. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Inexpressible quotes by Roland Barthes
#20. We often hear it said that it is the task of art to express the inexpressible: it is contrary which must be said (with no intention of paradox): the whole task of art is to unexpress the expressible, to kidnap from the world's language, which is the poor and powerful language of the passion, another speech, an exact speech. #Quote by Roland Barthes
The Inexpressible quotes by Donna J. Stone
#21. The most visible creators are those artists whose medium is life itself. The ones who express the inexpressible ~ without brush, hammer, clay, or guitar. They neither paint nor sculpt. Their medium is simply being. Whatever their presence touches has increased life. They see, but don't have to draw...
Because they are the artists of being alive... :) ~ ☆ ~ Donna J. Stone #Quote by Donna J. Stone
The Inexpressible quotes by George Eliot
#22. Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words. #Quote by George Eliot
The Inexpressible quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#23. The song being great in its own wealth, why should it wait upon the words? Rather does it begin where mere words fail. Its power lies in the region of the inexpressible; it tells us what the words cannot. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
The Inexpressible quotes by Sri Chinmoy
#24. Meditation is silence, energising and fulfilling. Silent is the eloquent expression of the inexpressible. #Quote by Sri Chinmoy
The Inexpressible quotes by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
#25. To see the unreal is wisdom. Beyond this lies the inexpressible. #Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
The Inexpressible quotes by Aldous Huxley
#26. After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
The Inexpressible quotes by Alvin Langdon Coburn
#27. An artist is a man who tries to express the inexpressible. #Quote by Alvin Langdon Coburn
The Inexpressible quotes by George Santayana
#28. A habitual indulgence in the inarticulate is a sure sign of the philosopher who has not learned to think, the poet who has not learned to write, the painter who has not learned to paint, and the impression that has not learned to express itself
all of which are compatible with an immensity of genius in the inexpressible soul. #Quote by George Santayana
The Inexpressible quotes by Richard Holloway
#29. All theology is a doomed but necessary attempt to express the inexpressible. God is the elusive mystery we try to capture and convey in language, but how can that ever be done? If the word water is not itself drinkable, how can the words we use to express the mystery of God be themselves absolute? They are metaphors, analogies, figures of speech, yet religious people have slaughtered and condemned each other over these experimental uncertainties. Our glory and agony as humans is that we long to find words that will no longer be words, mere signifiers, but the very experience they are trying to signify; and our tragedy is that we never succeed. This is the anguish that lies at the heart of all religion, because, though our words can describe our thirst for the absolute, they can never satisfy it. #Quote by Richard Holloway
The Inexpressible quotes by Charles Munch
#30. Music is an art that expresses the inexpressible. It rises far above what words can mean or the intelligence define. Its domain is the imponderable and impalpable land of the unconscious. #Quote by Charles Munch
The Inexpressible quotes by Heber J. Grant
#31. The Lord is no respector of persons, and will give success to all who work for it. If l can only impress upon the minds of the youth of Zion the eloquence, the inexpressible eloquence of work, I shall feel fully repaid. #Quote by Heber J. Grant
The Inexpressible quotes by Jerome Frank
#32. The inexpressible is the only thing that is worthwhile. #Quote by Jerome Frank
The Inexpressible quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#33. Everything is gestation and bringing forth. To let each impression and each germ of feeling come to completion wholly in itself, in the dark, in the inexpressible, the unconscious, beyond the reach of one's own intelligence, and await with deep humility and patience the birth-hour of a new clarity: that alone is living the artist's life. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
The Inexpressible quotes by Rajneesh
#34. Never be ashamed of your tears. Be proud that you are still natural. Be proud that you can express the inexpressible through your tears. #Quote by Rajneesh
The Inexpressible quotes by Shashi Tharoor
#35. Five decades ago, as India's first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, began visibly ailing, the nation and the world were consumed by the question: 'After Nehru, who?' The inexpressible fear lay in the subtext to the question: 'After Nehru, what?' #Quote by Shashi Tharoor
The Inexpressible quotes by Robert Fripp
#36. In strange and uncertain times such as those we are living in, sometimes a reasonable person might despair. But hope is unreasonable and love is greater even than this. May we trust the inexpressible benevolence of the creative impulse. #Quote by Robert Fripp
The Inexpressible quotes by Ovid
#37. Our native land charms us with inexpressible sweetness, and never, never allows us to forget that we belong to it. #Quote by Ovid
The Inexpressible quotes by Rumi
#38. Love is an emotion. Totally silent and inexpressible with words. #Quote by Rumi
The Inexpressible quotes by Nick Flynn
#39. Our job as writers, as far as I can tell, is to attempt to express what seems inexpressible. #Quote by Nick Flynn
The Inexpressible quotes by Meghan O'Rourke
#40. Grief is at once a public and a private experience. One's inner, inexpressible disruption cannot be fully realized in one's public persona. #Quote by Meghan O'Rourke
The Inexpressible quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#41. We love a girl for very different qualities than understanding. We love her for her beauty, her youth, her mirth, her confidingness, her character, with its faults, caprices and God knows what other inexpressible charms; but we do not love her understanding. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
