. . . und alles, was man weiss, nich bloss rauschen und brausen gehört hat, lässt sich in drei Worten sagen. - Kürnburger
"...and whatever a man knows,
whatever is not mere overheard rumbling and roaring,
can be said in three words."
"A clear hint from the alleged positivist that the invisible is more important than the visible, an attitude which in turn explains why he could write" (Gunnar Olsson):
"The whole sense of the book might be summed up in the following words: what can be said at all can be said clearly, and what we cannot talk about we must pass over in silence."
