“But can’t you see that all the trouble lies here! In the words! All of us have a world full of things inside of us, each of us his own world full of things!
And how can we understand one another, sir, if in the words I speak I put the meaning and the value of things as I myself see them, while the one who listens inevitably takes them according to the meaning and the value which he has in himself of the world he has inside of himself.
We think we understand each other; we never understand one another.”
– Six Characters in Search of an Author, Pirandello

Whatever you say, indeed.
