A Quote by Martin Buber on ich und du, wahrheit, geist, and sprache

In Wahrheit nämlich steckt die Sprache nicht im Menschen, sondern der Mensch steht in der Sprache und redet aus ihr, — so alles Wort, so aller Geist. Geist ist nicht im Ich, sondern zwischen Ich und Du. Er ist nicht wie das Blut, das in dir kreist, sondern wie die Luft, in der du atmest.
