„I learned to understand their language and to speak it a little.“

—  Cyrano de Bergerac French novelist, dramatist, scientist and duelist 1619 - 1655

The Other World (1657)
Contexto: I learned to understand their language and to speak it a little. Immediately the news spread throughout the kingdom that two little wild men had been discovered.

„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

1920s, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (1922)
Contexto: 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)
