Was jemand willentlich verbergen will…

Was jemand willentlich verbergen will, sei es nur vor anderen, sei es vor sich selber, auch was er unbewusst in sich trägt: die Sprache bringt es an den Tag.

What someone wants to hide at will, be it in front of others, be it in front of himself, even what he unconsciously carries in itself: the language reveals it.

(Victor Klemperer, LTI)
