Quotes 12 - Understanding…

A quote on understanding

If I hear myself speaking out loud, the ears with which I hear myself speaking out loud do not listen to me in the same way as the inner ear with which I dare to think those words. And if, when listening to myself, I frequently have to ask myself what I mean, how little others will understand me!

— Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet
