"THE LIMIT OF LANGUAGE IS SHOWN BY ITS BEING IMPOSSIBLE TO DESCRIBE THE FACT WHICH CORRESPONDS TO A SENTENCE WITHOUT SIMPLY REPEATING THE SENTENCE."

I cam across this passage yesterday in Wittgenstein's CULTURE AND VALUE- and immediately, superficially, thought it to be a less than accurate statement- though upon reflection (and certainly taken in the context of W.'s work), it is a bracingly profound thought.
I thought I'd share it.
