“Language used in excess, both via the spoken and the written word, has an effect almost like that of memory: something that is triggered despite yourself. And knowledge in its ready-made assertions makes it very difficult to come back to a place of beginner’s wonder – unlike the outsider who can often encounter things and events afresh, as if for the first time, and in silence [...] But how to become a stranger in your own culture, your own territory, your own home? It’s a real challenge to begin anew.” (Trinh T. Minh-ha)
