The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.

Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein (26 April 1889 – 29 April 1951)

Wittgenstein was an Austrian-British philosopher who worked primarily in logic, the philosophy of mathematics, and the philosphy of language. Described by Bertrand Russell as “the most perfect example I have ever known of genius as traditionally conceived, passionate, profound, intense, and dominating,” Wittgenstein is considered by many to be the greatest philosopher of the 20th century.
