“However much we may talk about water and describe it quite intelligently, that does not make it real water.
So with fire. Mere talking of it will not make the mouth burn.
To know what they are means to experience them in actual concreteness.
A book on cooking will not cure our hunger.
To feel satisfied we must have actual food.
So long as we do not go beyond mere talking, we are not true knowers.”
