„There was a day when I died, utterly died — died to George Müller, his opinions, preferences, tastes, and will; died to the world, its approval or censure; died to the approval or blame even of my brethren and friends — and since then I have only to show myself approved to God.“

—  George Müller German-English clergyman 1805 - 1898

„The world is my world: this is manifest in the fact that the limits of language (of that language which alone I understand) mean the limits of my world.“

—  Ludwig Wittgenstein Austrian-British philosopher 1889 - 1951
Context: This remark provides the key to the problem, how much truth there is in solipsism. For what the solipsist means is quite correct; only it cannot be said, but makes itself manifest. The world is my world: this is manifest in the fact that the limits of language (of that language which alone I understand) mean the limits of my world. (5.62)
