Things you cant quantify with words, but still scrabble to explain all the same.

Do you mean things like love? ^-^
That's something that's hard to explain in words yet we all try to!

anything me maties, could be love, could be the relationship betweeen you and your family.

Anything you do the best to describe to others, through mere words, anything metaphyscial you try to describe using purely physical means. i wish to hear it, being merely a vessel of broken verbiage myself.

A feeling perhaps, that you find impossible to pin to the cork-board of your recollection. Any turgid, ham-fisted grasp at the elusive description of your most valuable experiences I wish to hear.

And yes, I AM intrusive. So lets hear it.

^ oh thats easy enough. 1/2ton sexy beast, hurt like hell, etc, etc.

Not sure what your getting at, but I'd suggest the failure is on your end. You simply don't have words to explain and come to terms with what you are experiencing. If you are scrabbling to explain something then you are in the process of quantifying it.

I suggest looking into philosophy of language to come to a better understanding of what you mean. Language as we use it has a ton a faults surely, at times incoherent, vague, ambiguous, and so on.

It is a failure on my end my friend, of that I wholeheartedly agree.

However, a degree in english lit, and philosophy has not even given me a ledge upon which to perch and adequately recount a certain experience of mine.

So I am given to wonder, if anyone else can truly encapsulate an experience so dear to them, they have to get drunk just to think about it. Something so horribly... divine, that mere words buckle at the literary rampage of emotion forced upon them.

And moreso, I would like to hear about the experiences others have, that causes such an effect upon people.

Well its hard to help when your being cryptic. I suppose at times one can't adequately explain what they think/feel, but what is there to say beyond that?

I'm beginning to thing that cbisram got it right.

I think I understand what you mean. Here's a conundrum.

Explain the color orange to a man who has been blind all of his life.

Probably wrong. Let me go hunt down my dictionary.

Here it is.

I think Jack Nicholson did a good job in that movie he did several years ago, "As Good As It Gets" I beleive. He played a writer who was asked how he wrote women some accurately. He responed along the lines of "It's simple, I just write a man, except I remove all logic and reason."
