“The thinker can never himself say what is most of all his own. It must remain unsaid, because what is sayable receives its determination from what is not sayable.”


<b>The quote goes on to say: "</b>What is most of all the thinker’s own, however, is not his possession, but rather belongs to Being whose transmission thinking receives in its projects. But these projects only bear witness to the dwelling in what is transmitted."
