One thought expressed however clumsily gives birth to another in the hearer or reader.
This is the goal of dialog, and not the text itself.
“Words are an aspect of the attempted communication of thought. They are not thought. When we see words described as ‘thoughts,’ we should make sure that we know this distinction.” [Idries Shah (pbuh), Reflections (London, 1991 7th ptg) — p 63]
