“ 4.002 Language disguises the thought; so that from the external form of the clothes one cannot infer the form of the thought they clothe, because the external form of the clothes is constructed with quite another object than to let the form of the body be recognized. 

 

5.6 The limits of my language mean the limits of my world. 

 

5.62  In fact what solipsism means, is quite correct, only it cannot be said, but it shows itself.
That the world is my world, shows itself in the fact that the limits of the language (the language which only I understand) mean the limits of my world.

5.64 Here we see that solipsism strictly carried out coincides with pure realism. The I in solipsism shrinks to an extensionless point and there remains the reality coordinated with it. 

 

5.641 There is therefore really a sense in which in philosophy we can talk of a non-psychological I. 

The I occurs in philosophy through the fact that the “world is my world”. 

The philosophical I is not the man, not the human body or the human soul of which psychology treats, but the metaphysical subject, the limit—not a part of the world. “

“ 咸其自取,怒者其谁邪? ”

When (the wind) blows, (the sounds from) the myriad apertures are different, and (its cessation) makes them stop of themselves. Both of these things arise from (the wind and the apertures) themselves - should there be any other agency that excites them?'". (The answer is considered as no.) (James Legge's original translation)
