“And the air was full of Thoughts and Things to Say.
But at times like these only the Small Things are ever said.
The Big Things lurk unsaid inside.”
The God of Small Things – Arundhati Roy
“It is true that words drop away and that the important things are often left unsaid. The important things are learned in faces, in gestures, not in our locked tongues. The true things are too big or too small, or in any case always the wrong size to fit the template called language”
Lighthousekeeping – Jeanette Winterson
