‘In the beginning, when I was giving lectures here in New York, when I sat in SILENCE the audience thought the Reverend has forgotten a word and is thinking about it. But it is not that. My meaning was that there are no words to speak about it with. Then some of my audience would say, “Reverend, do you need a dictionary?”
No, I don’t need a dictionary. This is not written in a dictionary. The human being cannot explain THIS. I said THIS; I didn’t say “this attitude” or “this silence”. I said THIS. Human beings cannot explain THIS.’
