Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our mind by means of our language.

The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish spurting out ink.

Simplicity can only exist in what is true.

Great things only require to be simply told.

Nothing is more simple than greatness; indeed, to be simple is to be great.
